SEWING TECHNIQUES. TYPES OF OPENING IN GARMENT CONSTRUCTION

For every closure in your garment there is an opening. Ironically, the same principle applies to life. But today we are focusing on sewing.

How many types of closure and openings can you handle. At least, these few ones here, you should be able to handle them as a fashion student or fashion designer.

What Are Openings And Closures?

Openings and closures are the spaces you leave on garments made to allow for wearing and removing. These openings are closes in different ways as you choose or as suits your design.

Let’s examine a few-

FACING – easy to handle and one of the basic opening techniques you learn and master as a fashion designer. It is sewn by cutting fabric of same shape around the neckline but shorter than the garment. It’s few inches long, and flipped inside or outside the garment as the design calls for.

This is made by a slit and sewing on fabric cuts to make the placket. Same or contrasting fabrics can be used to achieve this.

Hemmed openings is about the simplest, but one needs to be extra careful to avoid stretching the curves thereby giving excess. The fabric is folded in twice and sewn. As much as it appears simple, it can go wrong if care is not taken. This type is best used when working with sheer fabrics, delicate fabrics etc.

FALSE PLACKET- as the name suggests, it’s just a placement for fashion sake. It’s not exactly an opening, but sewn on the garment to give an appearance of one.

BIAS BOUND- using BIAS cut fabrics or bias tape / ribbons to finish the garment opening. It can be done inwards or outward. When sewing this, avoid stretching the bias fabric/ tape and the fabric. Stretching either of this will equally alter the size of the opening originally planned. And may cause gaping.

FLY OPENING -for zipper closures. It’s a layover kind of opening. Used mostly on trousers but not for trousers only, can be used in skirts, blouses, dresses, etc.

This openings are on the seam lines. Side, back, shoulder etc. Any type of zipper can be used. But the use of invisible zippers is common with this type of opening in menswear lately.

OVERLAPPED OPENINGS as seen in wraps or surplice designs, jackets, tops, and more. This can be used in a way it works with the design you are working on.

BACK OPENINGS- who doesn’t know a back opening? No one. Simply and can be used among side facing, bias bound, false placket, zippers on and on. When making garments won’t high front neckline and you want to avoid zippers, back opening can be used and closed with fasteners of your choice. – hook and eye, snaps, etc.

GATHERED/ DRAWSTRING – commonly seen in off shoulder maxi tops and dresses, or any other kind of garment. Here little excess are drawn together to make the opening firm. Also used in finishing skirts, trousers etc.

The art of sewing is a constant lesson. Don’t stop learning.

STARTING YOUR CLOTHING / FASHION BUSINESS RIGHT FROM HOME

Oftentimes, I’ve found myself as a teacher being asked questions about starting up the business on a low scale. Personally, I started my business from home. And it was a great experience. I see it as an opportunity many can make good use of. It helps in giving you enough time to save up, build your brand and gain client, most importantly; gain the good, the bad, the ugly, the sweet experiences; and get you well prepared for the real world of business out there.

You being in the fashion business world is already an advantage. Remember, everyone wants to cover up, and look good especially. It tells you, you have a business meeting readymade needs by nature. Food and clothing are part of the major things no one can do without.

Having it in mind that the business you’re about to go into is almost a “Sure” venture. Gives a good prospect. You can bet on it.

You’ve always heard it – Dream BIG!

And now, as a startup, you have also decided to Dream Very Big. This is absolutely cool. 👍. But wait a minute, what about crawling before walking, walking before running……

There is a Process. Whether you choose to see it or not accept it. Don’t go ahead of yourself in the process of dreaming Big.

Your dream of becoming famous should be set aside, invest all the strength you have at the start into setting off your business line on a solid start.

Get all the knowledge you can. Be well equipped before the startup. There is a lot to understand before kicking off, that is why when you choose to learn, choose a school or a college that will teach you “All-Round”. It’s not enough to know how to sew, you need to know a lot of things. – Latest Trends, styles, body types and how to style each body type, colors, balance, shapes, the details of production, marketing, customer relations, and a whole lot more……

There is a lot to learn before you even start the business, if you want to be ahead of your game. Asides the one you will learn as you go.

To Create The Clothing Line Of Your Dreams

Have it in mind that the field is full out there. Everyone is making something, this is where the part of RESEARCH comes in. Understand the competion going on and how you can enter the market and get your feet standing. Your works must be powerful enough to gain the attention, retain the attention and get your more clients.

It will be good to choose a market to start with. You could choose children, women, men, plus size, maternity, etc…… But whichever one you choose, research to know what their market lacks. And start somewhere.

Ask to know what they need. – feedback helps, let them tell you what they feel about your work and ask for what they want. This will help you discover areas you can take advantage of.

Think up ways to maximize your limited capital. – you want to start small, it won’t be good if you put the money into what’s not worth it. Buy what you need, not what you feel is important.

More tips coming soon…… share this with a friend or anyone that needs this.

TIPS TO MAKE YOUR SEWING PROJECTS EASIER.

Sewing is fun. Yes we that Sew, know. But, once in some times, little things can make you cranky while working on your projects.

Today, we have some saving tips for you. You need them and surely, they will help you a whole lot. Don’t just read alone, share with a friend that sews too.

Many a times, the thread just refuses to cooperate with you when you want to fix it, due to different conditions. You’re not alone. There’s a very simple hack to make this stop.

Your Hairspray! That spray is enough to help you stiffen the thread, and that makes the threading perfectly easier. ✅. Check that. And don’t forget.

•• Sewing gathers made easier. This will only work if you have or use a zigzag sewing machine. Get a knitting thread/wool. Place in the middle and run your loose zigzag stitches over it. Then pull the wool. There you have your easy and well laid gather. And every time you pull your gathers to the needed inches, always remember to run your regular firm stich over the line to make it stay and well laid. ✅

••• The Bar Soap and pins Magic.

If you have heard of emery bag in your sewing classes. It’s that bag that contains special dust to keep your pins sharp. There are times you would want to push the pins through some fabric layers and they just won’t go. If you can’t access the emery bag. Your soap could do the magic. You will be surprised!

That’s a license to no more bent and rusted full pins. ✅

To get sharp pointed edges. Trim twice. Trim the excess that creators bulk inside off.

We’ll pause here today and pick next time.

Stay connected.

Plan On Sundays….

A new week starts on Sundays. No other time to ‘plan perfect’, than to sit and look at what you intend to achieve that week on its first day.

Do you take each day as it comes? Or you plan how you want it to be? Either you live by ‘faith’ or by the day as it unveils. Everyone needs to plan well.

Take a few seconds today to look at what you would want to get done this week and list them out. Listing helps. It gives you something to work with and work towards. The joy of you ticking your goals and simple tasks achieved, serves as some form of booster.

Don’t let the days pass by this year like it’s always been doing, you need to work hard and put in more effort to have the life of your dreams.

When planning the week, don’t get too serious. Many of us include only the serious tasks like working, gym, completing chores etc. this list gets too serious and makes you a ‘serious’ person. Be flexible and creative. Include things that will make you love the day more.

these goals sound funny and silly, but they relax your nerves, and when you are relaxed, the best in you comes out more.

plan meals, plan new outfit combination, work on things differently.

It’s always good to make this list and be realistic with it. If you write more than you can achieve, it will end up discouraging you more.

choose a day of the week that you spend relaxing. Do something spontaneous.

Having a productive week seems easy to work towards. But , be willing to always break your rigid schedule. It always adds more flavor to what you do.

Have a sweet “out of the regular box” week.
