DIY: How to make a silk leopard dress. Part 4. How to attach lining and welt. Sewing tutorial.
Today we continue working with a leopard dress.
First I just wanted to show you the designing, but then I’ve realized I’d better show you the whole process. Either way you’d be asking a lot of questions.
I’ve already showed you how to cut the lining, and today I’ll show you how to connect the details.
The dress is almost ready, the side seams and the tucks are already stitched.
First of all I need to stitch the shoulder and press it open. I’ll ask one of our tailors to do it.
When we finish stitching, we’ll press the seams open. After that I’ll show you how to attach lining to an item.
Have a look here. The most important thing is that the seam is straight and the fabric is not stretched or gathered.
It’s okay that the edge of the adhesive material is a bit lower. The seam will be pressed open, so the edges will be hidden.
I’ll show you how to attach a lining to an item.
I want you to have a look at the welt. I didn’t have enough fabric for it, so it consists of the small pieces sewn together.
The lining was made of silk. If you can’t afford buying silk, you can make is of viscose. It should be very thin and light.
In this case I wouldn’t recommend making an item itself and lining of the same fabric. Attach a lining to a dress not wrong side-to-wrong side, but face-to-face.
I’ll show you everything.
What I need to do now is to put the neckline on a table and make sure that the fabric on the neckline isn’t stretched or gathered.
Be very attentive! Do not stretch the fabric.
If you pin the details carefully, you won’t have any problems later. The more carefully you do it, the less problems you’ll have when stitching.
When stitching, make stitches which are not more than 3mm long.
We’ll do the most part of stitching off the camera. It’s better to iron stitches before turning them right side out.
The welt and the bow were doubled with an adhesive material.
Thank you for your comments! It’s a pleasure to read them.
