I made a suit jumper today at my work place.
happy new week to you all, trust you all are doing great. it's really exciting to join you guys over here at the needwork community, take it from me with all sincerity am super happy to be here with you guys trust me.
joining the hive community the first community that captured my attention was this needlework community, reason is that am a tailor and I sew on a daily basis so getting content to post here will be alot more easier compared to the other communities. Taking a walk through this community, I'm very much impressed and welling to explore here so that's why am here with my own work to share with you all. stay focus and enjoy the session.
this is the finished work of the cloth I'll be sharing how I made it.
sewing equipment I used:
harsh color fabric
my cutting pattern:
I first of all lay the fabric into two on the table and bend in 2.5inches for the button and hole allowance because the pattern am sewing will be like a shirt but this one is called suit jumper, so after that I made my sketch of the body according to the person body size I measured but I added 3inches in all and I draw out the measurement and I cut it out.
I moved to using the front I just finished cutting to cut out the back view and the sleeve too. with this effort my cutting was done with.
my sewing pattern:
firstly how I got to make the breast pocket by the side of the front.
About the pocket:
after I finished cutting the cloth, I try fixing this pocket, this pocket is like breast pocket of a suit, this is how I start, I cut the material when I finish cutting the material I cut light stay gum and place ontop the material then I use hot iron place on it so the gum will glue properly on the material.
after that, I draw a line on the front of the cloth then that line is were the pocket will be fixed.
After I finished drawing the line from that front piece I draw about 1inche on the pieces I just finished adding light-stay gum on, then I make sure that the line should should meet then I start sewing, carry the pieces and place in front of cloth then I skatch the pocket size to be 4inches, then i started sewing from where the beginning till the end where I ended the line now when I start sewing I make sure that I tag the first threading.
when I finish sewing it I use scissors and divided it. when I am about to reach the end I then pinch it in a V form.
then I turn the pocket to the front side and i did tagging so that the pocket will not have issues.
now the front was ready and I fixed the lining.
About the back piece:
I start with back piece I gum the pieces before I carry it and paste it on the back view of the cloth then I sew.
About the shoulder joining:
after I was done with the front and the back view I joined them together.
About the sleeve:
for the sleeve we use collar gum to prepare them. when am doing the cutting, i cut it like turning sleeve add allowance on it that allowance called sewing allowance
then I sew it round the collar gum and pieces must be down so that as u finish sewing u can use that pieces to turn it so that the pieces will cover the gum inside.
About the collar:
first of all I will draw the neck size on a color gum then I cut it,
after I finish cutting it I use the pieces of the material carrying the colar gum place on that pieces and use hot iron on it, that is how i prepare and fix my collar.
