- Pattern drafting
- Over-lock (serge) seams
- Cover-stitch to finish openings
Just for fun, the entire process was filmed. Here is a fast forward edition on the little black knit dress.
I want my skirt to have extra flare. To do this, add additional slash lines from waist to hem. Cut up the slash lines, keeping the waist at zero. This is when you can decide how much flare to add. I added a 3`width opening at the hem. Remember to add the same amount to all slash lines to keep a balanced look. Below is my complete FRONT and BACK skirt pieces with additional flare.
Over-lock (Serg) Seams
A cover-stitch machine creates a finished top-stitching look on the right side of the garment and a serged look in the underside. It allows the knit fabric to stretch with ease without breaking the thread.
