Notes on leather (or imitation leather): We
recommend that you first make the
garment from inexpensive cotton fabric.
Transfer any required alterations to the
paper pattern before cutting out the
leather. Avoid basting leather and ripping
seams since the needle holes left are
permanent. Press leather from the wrong
side (cover with a pressing cloth), at
a moderate temperature and without
steam. Test-iron a scrap of the leather first.
Read Burda Instructions (on page 64)

HELPFUL HINT
A wide variety of velvet is available today—silk velvet, cotton velvet, corduroy velvet, panné velvet or
stretch velvet. The care of these different fabrics varies greatly as does their handling during sewing. Ask
about the fiber content and care of your fabric at purchase. Remember the following information when
working with velvet:
Velvet should not be stored flat. It is better to
hang the fabric by attaching the selvedges to a
clothes hanger.
On delicate velvet, do not rip finished seams
since needle holes are permanent. We recommend
first making the garment from inexpensive cotton.
Then transfer any required alterations to the paper
pattern before cutting out the velvet.
The color of velvet fabrics will be deeper
and more intense when the fabric is cut against the
nap. Run your hand over the fabric to determine
the nap direction. The pile will lie flat when stroked
with the nap and will be raised when stroked
against the nap. The direction of the nap is noted
on the pattern layout. Place all pattern pieces for
one garment on the fabric in the same direction.
Should the pile fibers come off the cut edges of
the fabric, neaten the edges immediately after
cutting.
Use tailor‘s tacks to mark velvet. Use fine
thread to hand-baste long stitches on a double
layer of fabric, along the edge of the pattern piece,
leaving a loop of thread in back of each stitch. Pull
the fabric layers apart and carefully clip the threads
between the layers.
Use only a fine needle and thread for basting.
Also use a fine sewing machine needle with a
sharp point.
To prevent velvet from slipping during
stitching, insert the pins across the seamline and
then stitch slowly up to them and remove. If
your velvet has a deep pile, baste on each side of
the seamline. It is important to stitch all seams in
the same direction.
Choose an ironing temperature based on the
fiber content. As a rule, press only from the wrong
side and always test press a scrap of fabric first.
Cotton velvet can be steamed at a wool setting.
Velvet made from of silk, rayon or synthetic fibers
should be pressed with low heat (setting for
synthetics/silk) and without steam. Glide the iron
over the fabric without pressure to prevent the pile
from flattening. It is imperative that any pressing is
done on a soft, textured surface. We recommend
covering your ironing surface with a piece of velvet
(pile side up) or with a thick terry cloth towel.
Special surfaces for pressing velvet are available at
fabric stores.
Sew-in interfacings are best for velvet. Use
organza to interface delicate velvets.

holes are permanent. Press leather from the
wrong side (cover with a pressing cloth), at
a moderate temperature and without steam.
Test press a scrap of the leather first.

Detailed Hand-Sewing
Sometimes you have to step away from the machine for accuracy and precision
BY AMANDA KAUFMANN
DOING IT RIGHT
THE FINE POINT
Hand-sewing needles come in different
sizes and shapes designed for various types
of sewing. The needle type is defined by
its length, the size and shape of its eye,
and whether the point is sharp or blunt.
All-purpose needles are meant for most
projects, and they’re medium length and
sharp. Short needles are used for hand
quilting, hemming, and other finishing
techniques, while longer needles are used
for basting, embroidery, and darning. Needle
thickness corresponds to the weight of the
fabric, with thin needles meant for light- to
medium-weight fabrics, and thick needles
designed for upholstery and other heavy
QUALITY AND CONTROL
So why sew by hand when you have a
perfectly good sewing machine? One
reason: hand-sewing gives you more
control. This comes in handy if you’re
trying to make a hem actually invisible, if
you’re sewing very narrow pieces of fabric,
if you’re shaping a garment, or if you just
need your stitches to be as precise as
possible. Plus, hand stitches are less likely
to leave a mark on fragile fabrics if you
need to take them out.
There are also times when hand sewing
may be the preferred option, such as when
attaching hook and eyes and shank buttons,
adding beading and other embellishments,
and showcasing embroidery designs.
Hand sewing is also portable — you can
do it anywhere.
fabrics. Wider or longer needle eyes allow
for thicker thread types, including upholstery
thread, embroidery floss, and yarn for
crewelwork.
PROPER PREPARATION
When you’re getting ready to start hand-
sewing, it’s best to sit with the bulk of your
fabric resting on a table in front of you. If
you’re right-handed, you want to hold the
fabric edge with your left hand and the
needle in your right hand. As you sew, you
will most likely move from right to left,
depending on the stitch. The opposite is true
if you are left-handed.
To thread your needle, insert one end of
thread through the eye and pull through the
length that you estimate you will need for
your project. Work with a reasonable length

of thread — if it’s too long, it can knot and
tangle. Although not always convenient,
there’s nothing wrong with rethreading
mid-seam.
If you are sewing double-threaded
stitches, bring the ends of the thread
together and tie them into an overhand knot.
If sewing with a single strand of thread,
make sure that the short end of the thread is
at least 5” (12.5 cm) out of the needle’s eye
to prevent it from falling out while sewing.
You can either tie a knot at the end of the
long length of thread, or you can secure
the thread to the fabric by making several
stitches on top of each other. Don’t be
afraid to leave a thread tail coming out of
your knot—just cut it away after you start
sewing.
HAND-SEWING STITCHES
BASIC STITCHES
The most basic stitch is the running stitch.
It is used to piece fabric together as well as
for embroidery. After “knotting on” (securing
the end of the thread to the fabric), insert
the tip of the needle into the fabric 1/8”
(3 mm) away and bring the needle point
back up through the fabric another 1/8” (3
mm) from there, ¼” (6 mm) away from the
starting point. Pull through and repeat.
The backstitch is a variation of the
running stitch, but is much stronger. After
knotting on, pick up a 1/8” (3 mm) stitch.
Pull the thread all the way through and
insert the needle into the fabric 1/8” (3 mm)
back (at your starting point). Pull the thread
through and insert the needle into the fabric
1/8” (3 mm) ahead of all stitches, which is
¼” (6 mm) from the current thread position.
To repeat, pull through and insert the needle
1/8” (3 mm) behind.
The whipstitch is another basic variant
of the running stitch and is useful for joining
two edges of fabric together, either for a
very small seam allowance or for mending a
hole in one’s clothes. It can also be sewn on
the right side of the fabric as a decorative
way to join seams. Knot-on and insert the
needle from underneath, going through all
layers of fabric until the needle comes out of
the top fabric layer. Pull through and repeat
by bringing the needle back to the bottom
layer and inserting it 1/16” (2 mm) from
where it was before, pulling through to the
top layer. When using heavier threads, space
stitches farther apart.
TEMPORARY STITCHES
Temporary stitches are divided into two
categories: basting and marking stitches.
A basting stitch is meant to hold pieces
of fabric together to check a garment’s
fit or to keep them in the right position
during construction. Hand basting stitches
can also be used instead of pins when
designing on a dress form as it allows
you to take the garment easily on and off
the dress form and reduces pinholes. A
marking stitch, such as thread tracing or
tailor's tacks, is used to show where pieces
of fabric meet, such as pleats, tucks, and
seam edges as well as dart and buttonhole
"Use fusible web to quickly attach facings
to seamlines, like at shoulders,
waistlines, and other turn-backs. Just
cut a small square, insert it between
the layers, and fuse." —IINnA 1uuNIu
cuIIÞIN1uoc, 1IcuNIcAI InI1ou
FROM THE EDITOR
Threadless
"sewing"
If you don’t have the patience or
the time to hand-sew a hem or
baste fabric pieces together, and
you just need a quick and simple
(often temporary) solution, there
are myriad no-sew products you
can choose from, each suited to
different purposes.
FUSIBLE WEB
Available in rolls of various widths,
pre-cut sheets, and by the yard,
fusible web bonds two pieces of
fabric together when inserted
between them and ironed. Use this
for fast hemming, securing trims,
and appliquéing.
FUSIBLE ADHESIVE
Like fusible web except in sheet
form, fusible adhesive can turn any
fabric into an interfacing, or it can
be trimmed to shape for appliqué
work.
FABRIC GLUE
Fabric glue can be temporary or
permanent, so check the label.
Use it to attach beads, sequins,
and other embellishments to
garments. It’s also great for
holding appliqué edges in
place for hand stitching,
and holding notions,
like buttons, in
place for stitching.
Available in liquid and
stick form.
FRAY PREVENTER
Fray preventer is liquid and
designed to stop fabric edges and
threads from fraying.
Like all sewing products, be sure
to follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for use.

placements. Consider them the thread
version of a marking pencil.
Basting and thread tracing are both
simply running stitches, but with longer
stitch lengths for speed and ease of removal.
To thread trace, follow the lines that you
would mark with a pencil through a single
layer of fabric using a thread color that will
be easily visible. You may also baste two
layers together, such as the fashion fabric
and underlining, to save some time.
Tailor’s tacks mark your fabric using
thread. They mark two layers of fabric
simultaneously while they are still attached
to the pattern piece, and they’re also
suitable for marking fabrics such as whites
or very delicate sheers, where other marking
methods may damage the fabric. To do a
tailor’s tack, take a doubled length of thread,
unknotted, and enter through the pattern
piece at the desired point, going through all
layers of fabric and leaving a 1” (2.5 cm) tail
of thread. Reinsert the needle 1/8” (3 mm)
away into the bottom layer of the fabric,
pulling through all layers to the top. Repeat
the first step, making sure to leave a 1-2”
(2.5-5 cm) thread loop on top (i.e. don’t pull
tight). Then, repeat the second step so that
you end up with a thread loop that connects
all layers. Cut the top loop and gently pull off
the pattern piece. Separate the fabric layers
enough to snip the threads between, making
sure not to pull the fabric off of the tailor’s
tack on either side.
INVISIBLE STITCHES
The blind hem stitch is used for hemming
tailored garments, making the hem secure
on the inside and “invisible” on the right
side, as its name suggests. Press under
the hem allowance, turn under the edge
1/4” (6 mm) and knot-on within the hem
seam allowance. Insert the needle into the
garment, picking up only a couple of the
fabric’s threads. Then, insert the needle
into the hem folded edge, travel through the
fold ¼” (6 mm) to ½” (1.3 cm), and bring
the needle out of the fold. To repeat, pick
up a couple threads of the garment fabric
where you exited the fold and continue
around the entire hem.
The slipstitch is like the blind hem
except that it is worked from the right
side of the garment (like when closing a
hole in a seam, or attaching a facing to a
zipper tape). Knot-on to the folded seam
allowance of one piece of fabric, and insert
the needle into the other piece of fabric,
making a running stitch ¼” (6 mm) in the
folded-under seam allowance. If the second
piece doesn’t have a folded-under seam
allowance (like on a zipper tape), just make
sure that the stitch runs underneath the
first fabric layer so that it won’t show on
the right side. Pull the thread through and
insert the needle directly back into the first
folded-under seam allowance, repeating
until done.
The blind catchstitch is a variation of
the blind hem that provides stretch and
more durability through its crisscross
movements. It is particularly good for
hemming heavy fabrics or fabrics with a
bit of stretch. Knot-on to the hem seam
allowance. Insert the needle into the
garment ½” (1.3 cm) away, pointing the
tip back towards the starting point and
picking up a few threads. Pull through
and cross back to the forward direction,
inserting the needle into the hem ¾” (2
cm) to 1” (2.5 cm) from original starting
point. With the needle in the hem, change
direction and make a ½” (1.3 cm) stitch in
the opposite direction, towards the starting
point. Pull through, change direction, and
insert needle into the garment, picking up a
couple of threads.

Look at your sewing machine and you’ll likely see
some stitches you haven’t used. Beyond the basics
that work for everyday sewing, depending on the
model, there may be stitches awaiting your creativity.
STRAIGHT STITCH
Used for joining seams, the straight stitch is the
workhorse stitch. For seaming, use a length of 2-
2.5 mm, backstitching at the beginning and end for
security. Lengthen the stitch slightly and perhaps
change to a heavier thread for topstitching an edge. If
you maximize the length, a straight stitch is ideal for
basting and gathering, whereas a shortened length is
perfect for staystitching when you need to minimize
stretch or distortion.
ZIGZAG STITCH
A straight stitch gone sideways, the zigzag stitch is
perfect at a narrow width to sew seams in knits that
need flexibility. Mid-width, it’s ideal for overcasting
the raw edge of a seam allowance. Shorten the
length so stitches are close together, and it becomes
a satin stitch, suitable for appliquéing. The zigzag
can also be used for embellishing, mending, or
attaching trims, elastic, and ribbons. The zigzag is
ideal for couching (when sewn over yarn or heavy
threads to secure them in a decorative pattern),
which is often done with invisible thread. A zigzag
sewn in one spot (using minimal to no stitch length)
creates a bartack, used to reinforce pocket tops and
other areas of stress.
STRAIGHT STRETCH STITCH
The straight stretch stitch is formed with two stitches
forward and one stitch back in a single line. It allows
your fabric to stretch and give without your seam
threads breaking. Use it for reinforcing areas with
extra stress, like pant crotch seams or armholes; the
seam can still be pressed open flat. The straight
stretch stitch also makes a prominent topstitch thanks
to the extra thread density.
MULTI-STEP ZIGZAG STITCH
Also called a three-step zigzag or mending stitch, the
configuration of a multi-step zigzag stitch is designed
to hold edges together, like those of a tear in your
fabric. With multiple stitches going both right and
left, this stitch is ideal for repairs, but also to sew on
elastic and tame raw fabric edges for finishing.
BLINDHEM STITCH
Combined with clever folding, the blindhem stitch
creates a machine-sewn hem that is held in place
with only small “bites” into the outer garment fabric.
The blindhem is a combination of multiple straight
stitches and single zigzag stitches, and a stretch
blindhem offers a combination of small zigzags and a
larger one for use on knits that need flexibility. The
amount of fabric you catch with the single zigzag
determines how much of the hem thread shows on
the right side, so to keep it “blind”, your goal is to
catch as little of the fabric as possible with that
single zigzag. The blindhem stitch can also be used
for appliqué, with the single zigzag catching the
appliqué itself, while the stitches in between remain
on the base fabric. A shell edge also uses the
blindhem stitch.

Get Playful!
Unless your machine has pre-set parameters for each
stitch, try getting a different look by lengthening or
shortening it, or widening or narrowing it.
Varying the thread can change even the most mundane
stitch into something really fun. Try a 12-weight thread
or buttonhole twist for stand-out stitching, rayon for
lustrous sheen, or metallic for a dressier look. Invisible
thread is an option when you’re looking for decreased
visibility. Be sure to choose a corresponding needle size
and type to the thread selection.
Twin needles come in multiple widths and sew two
parallel rows of stitching simultaneously. A twin needle
can enhance your stitch's ho-hum appearance, and
offer creative opportunities with even straight stitching.
“If your machine doesn't have any
fancy stitches, specialty presser
feet are the next best thing. There
are feet for everyday sewing tasks
such as hemming, binding, or
sewing buttonholes, as well as fun
techniques like sewing pintucks,
pleats, and gathers... even adding
fringe! If your local fabric or
sewing shop doesn’t carry a
big selection of specialty feet,
look online. I'd be lost
without my gathering foot!”
—AIANA wAIsu, AssIs1AN1 InI1ou
FROM THE EDITOR
STRETCH ZIGZAG
Similar to the straight stretch stitch, only with
width, the stretch zigzag uses two stitches
forward and one back, creating a bold zigzag
appearance that offers extra give. Good for
decorative uses, it mimics rickrack, and can
also be used to attach flat trims like bias
tape and braids, or for topstitching and seam
accents.
FEATHER STITCH
Looking like chicken footprints, the feather
stitch is used decoratively to attach laces and
trims, and also for highlighting seams on pieced
projects. It’s sometimes used between two
finished fabric edges to create an openwork
area called fagoting.
OVERLOCK OR
OVERCAST STITCH
Designed to mimic a serger stitch, the overlock/
overcast stitch is ideal for finishing raw edges.
Configurations vary by machine brand, but all
finish a raw fabric edge, and sometimes require
a special foot. The overlock/overcast stitch can
also be used on stretch fabrics to attach ribbing
or to sew a narrow seam and finish the raw
edges in one pass.
SCALLOP STITCH
Used as an edge finish or sewn within a project
as a decorative detail, scallop stitches are simple
The stitches on your machine can be used for utilitarian purposes and decorative
purpose alike, so think outside the box to change the look of your stitch.
to do. The stitch combines varying zigzag widths
and placements in a scallop pattern, and when the
stitch is sewn close to the edge of your fabric, the
excess fabric can be carefully trimmed down in order
to create a clean, scalloped edge. Scallop stitches
sewn off a finished edge, with only the scallop point
catching the fabric, create a picot edge finish.
Since there’s a single bobbin creating a zigzag on the
underside, twin needles create a fexible hem for knit
garments, and you’ll see them called for frequently in
BurdaStyle designs.
