Sew Along Boxers: Week 2

TERMS AND CONCEPTS

Welcome to the second week of my January Sew-Along; boxers! Let’s jump right into it, shall we?

IRONING

FABRIC LAYOUT

selvage is the edge of the fabric that comes off the loom. Usually companies will print white bars along the selvages. An easy way to spot the selvage, without the white bars, is to look for tiny little holes where the fabric was held to the loom.

Lengthwise grain runs perpendicular to the selvage. The lengthwise grain is what fabric stores will cut your fabric on.

READING PATTERNS

PINING

CUTTING

Prep for Week 3: Find the correct needles for your machine and fabric, and the correct color thread.
