Our advice for sewing the sweatshirt and the coast edge

  • Rest assured the overhead is not compulsory! You can sew the sewing machine by selecting the stretch or elastic point that looks like a little flash to keep the elasticity of your coast edge
  • Use a Jersey or stretch needle (80 to 90 maximum) so as not to create a hole
  • For pretty finishes, you can also use a double needle that will allow you to surprise with two parallel seams as in the trade
  • The sweatshirt fabric does not decide, so there is no need to make a zigzag point to surfing the edges of your seams.
  • Do not forget to wash your sweatshirt fabric before sewing it in a machine at 30 °, as it can possibly shrink a little.

The side edge can be presented in different forms.

  • Strip side :
    First of all, there is our Lurex-strip side edge, which you find in a 7cm high package on 110cm long. This strip can allow you to make sleeveless and lower body for a sweatshirt in a maximum size 40, or sleeve and a round teddy jacket.

The side edge in tubular form is sold per meter with a diameter of 35cm wide. It allows you to sew the bottom of the sleeve, the lower body of a sweatshirt and jackets. Ideal for adapting the height you want for your handle cuffs for example.

Follow your boss's instructions to assemble the front, back and sleeves of your sweatshirt. You can also sew the neckline of your sweatshirt.

Sew the sleeve bracelets

1- Cut the sleeve bracelets into your side edge according to the length recommended in your pattern.

2- Assemble place against the sides of your coastline strip, taking care to align the lines of your pattern.

3- pin your handle bracelet at the bottom of your sweatshirt by aligning the interior seam of your sleeve with your handle bracelet assembly seam. Stretch your handle bracelet to match the length with your bottom to avoid the folds on your sweatshirt.

4- Make the assembly seam at the very fine zigzag point and gently stretching your handle bracelet at the edge.

Sew the bottom of the sweatshirt

In the same way, you can sew the bottom of your sweatshirt by cutting a long coastline strip according to your boss.
