Text !L YNDA MAYNIARD WHAT.BEITER WAY TO ADD SO:NIE BUNG TO·YOUR HOLIDAY PARTIES THAN BY D·E.BUTING A SEQUINED TANK TOP? This is the perfect complement to .dress u·p·almost any pant or skirt. Or; length.en t'he tank to become a dress that tal<es ce·nter stage all by itself. There are several stretch sequined fabrics available ii1 myriad colors and patterns. Design details a.re not necessary because the fabric does all th·e work. And- there is no p·ressing. Learn how to handle this fabulous fabric--stitch seams, finish

edges, and ·master some inside details sur·e to shine just lil<e the fabric itself.. FABRIC Buy fabric according to the yardage requirements on the bacl{ of the pattern envelo·pe. This project requires sequined fabric with stretch., as it wil] be p·u lled on over the head. The pattern envelope \vill provide a fabric stretch.guide forreference so check it to be sure yours is a good m atch. So·m etimes sequins don't go all the way to the fabric edge, so measure the usable fabric \ividth to determine the amount needed. Since sequined fabric must be cut all in one direction, use the yardage listed for a ·nap or 011e=way design.

Most sequii'ned fab·rics h1,a·v e a base o·f netting: (st1retch or stable) with the sequins attached to it with t lh read or gl1ue.

1

OTHER SUPPLI ES You'll need th.read to match your fabric, and a half-y.ard of coordinating stretch mesh fab·ric for binding edges and finishing the hem. The mesh is the same as v.rhat y·ou'll find as a bacl{ing on the se·q l1ined fab·ric itself an d you can often find.th,em together at the fabric store. se.quined fabric can be marl{ed 'Arith chalk or a fabric-safe marl<er, depen.dling on the colo.r. Test on a scrap for visibility and r·emoval. Hand~basting a]so worl{S well to transfer construction details from

the pattern to the fabric \Vithout damaging sequins. BEF,O ·RE YOU BEGIN It's a good idea to check th,e fit o.f the·tank pattern before·you begin, as sequined fabric doesn't lend itself to alterations. So stitch up a

sample in an inexpensive knit with similar stretch and malce any

alterations needed befo.re cutting into th e sequined fabric. All seam allo\ivances should be 5/a···. If ·yoUI" pattern has only 1/4" seam allowances~ add an extra 3/s'ii to th,e pattern seam allow.ances befo·re cutting. Starting \¥ith a 5/s" seam allo\tva11ce maintains th·e integrity 1of the stitching line and allo;ws for more c]ose trimming during construction. Wider sean1 allowances also·prevent stretching and distortion.

Seams in se,quined fabric are finger-press·ed open. The heat from an iron can easily dan-i_age (or melt) delicate sequins, so it's best to avoid contact all together. Seam allowances wil] be hand-sewn to the fabric backing fo.r support. The tanl< shoulder seam is stabi]ized to allow for better "hang'' and reduced stress in this area. Working with sequined fabric is m essy business.. Plac·e an old sheet or \vi de muslin on the cutti11g surface fo·r easier cleanup, and ]{ee·p the v.a cuum handy

single layer of fabric. Avoid the temptation to cut on a fold. Place the sequined side of the fabric up on a surface large en ough to suppo·r t the en tire piece. Position the full pa ttem pieces on the fabric in one direction and.make sure the stretch goes around the body. Pat tern weights are ide.al for holding pieces on sequined fabrict and much easier to work with than pins. Cutting through sequins can dull scissors quickly, so if )'OU have ,a secondary pair, use those instead of your best dressmalcing she·ars. 1

PREPARE PIECES FOR SEWING On the wrong side, mark a]l seamlines with chalk o:r fabric mar~zer, then hand=baste all seamlines with long running stitches so they wi]l be visible from the sequined side. Using embroidl.ery floss or large thread in a contrasting color allows for c]ear visibility. Sev.ring O·ver sequins dulls ·needles quic]<.ly and stitching ·over sequins causes them to sticlc up iln the seams of the finished ganrnent, which is both unattractive and unco·mfortab]e. The sharp ,edges of the se·quins can snag other fabrics or scratch th.e sl<in. Use ashaTp 90/14or100/16 needle (depending on the fabric weig'.ht) and a 3 mm stitch len,gth for sewing seams. Remove sequins from the seam allowances, savl!ng a few for later replacen1ent. Remove all the sequins fro.m th·e shoulder and side seam allo·vvances. For the n·eclc and armholes,, remove about 1/4" of the sequi11s right next to the·seamline, creating a clear pat h for the machine to travel. These curve·d areas will b·e trimmed later, so the sequins \vill ultimately be completely removed from the seam allowances. Ren1ovilng th e sequins is extremely tedio,us \Vork, but this wi]l remove unsight]y bull< and the finished garment will flow be·a utifully and ha\re a gra·ceful,, fluid look.

Use a 1n arrow mesh binding to finish the neclkliin1e edge. 1

ASSEMBLE THE TOP Stabilize the ba·ck shoulder seams. The tank falls from the sho·ulders and the stabilized seam pr·ovides support for the fabric weight., Use the·selvedge from the m'l~!sh baclci11g as a stabi]izer- the color"s a p erfect ni.atch. 1

I

always loved collecting t hings! od d things ...receipts from a road trip, p en nie,s foundl on walks, and'. b it s of ima1ges from newspapers a nd magazines.

I rarely know why I'm gathering these things, but I like the act of collecting. I t hink of this group in terms of collectio ns.

Not just a collection in the literal se nse of the word, but a n a m a ssing of im ages that I've encountered a long t he way, scooped up wit h,o ut reallly kn,o wing why, a nd wa1tc h1ed emerge here in the pat terni,n g for From Outside In. I e ncountered these patterns, out there , somewhere, and they' ve made t he¡ way through my b rush or stam ~ be newly e ncountered as line or co or shape. Hope you enjoy these fa as much a s I d id desig n,ing them.

GETTING STARTED Basic techniques and terms you'll need to know for the pattern you have downloaded.

ASSEMBLING FULL-SIZE PATTERN PRINTOUT

1

I When prepar-

ing to print the PDF. make sure that you are p r i nti n g it at 100°/o an d that there is no scaling. Check the settings for page scaling [should be "None") and check the 2'' 2'' preview to make sure that you will be printing at full size. Make sure that the box labeled "Auto-Rotate and Center" is unchecked [instructions apply specifically to Adobe Reader; if using another PDF reader, check for similar settings).

Test Square x

PATTERN SYMBOLS & MARKINGS BUTTON + BUTTONHOLE PLACEMENT MARKS Solid lines indi-

0

cate buttonholes. A large open circle is the button symbol and shows placement.

on fold-i

I To ensure that the pattern has printed at the correct scale,

I To begin assembling the pattern, cut off or fold the dotted

should be parallel to the lengthwise grain or fold unless specifically marked as crosswise. Bias grainlines will be diagonal.

I

NOTCHES Notches are triangleshaped symbols used for accurately matching seams. Pieces to be joined will have corresponding notches.

LAYOUT, MARKING & CUTTING GUIDELINES

I Find the lines that correspond to your siz~ and trace

the pattern pieces, either on tissue paper or directly onto the fabric, using tracing paper and a tracing wheel.

2

I If you are cutting pattern pieces on the fold or cutting

two of the same pattern piece, fold the fabric in half, selvedge to selvedge, with rig ht sides together. Note that th is technique is not appropriate for some fabrics so check the project instructions if you are unsure.

3

I Lay the pattern pieces on the fabric as close together

as possible. Double-check that all pattern pieces to be cut "on the fold" are placed on the fold.

4

I Make sure all pattern pieces are placed on t~e fabri~

with the grainline running parallel to the lengthwise grain unless a crosswise or bias grainline is present.

5

I Copy all pattern markings onto the wrong side of the fabric

unless otherwise noted.

6

I Read through all cutting instructions listed in_the project

instructions for directions on how many pattern pieces to cut out of your fabric and interfacing.

7

I Use weights to hold the pattern pieces down and use

pins to secure the corners as needed.

8

I Cut the pieces slowly and carefully.

PLACE ON FOLD BRACKET This is

GRAINLINE The double-ended arrow

margin around each page. 4 The pages are numbered in rows, so the first row of pages is numbered 1a, 1b, 1c, etc. Line up the rows and match the dotted lines together so they overlap. Tape the pages together. Use the illustrated guide to match each piece. Once the pattern is complete, find your size, pin the pattern to the fabric, and follow the coordinating line to cut out or trace the pattern.

1

patterns have different cutting lines for each size.

a grainline marking with arrows pointing to the edge of the pattern . Place on the fold of the fabric so that your finished piece will be twice the size of the pattern piece, without adding a seam.

check the size of the TEST SQUARE. The Test Square should be 2" x 2" [5 x 5 cm).

DARTS Dashed lines and dots mark darts. The dashed lines show where the stitching will be, and the dot shows the position of the d art poi nt [s ig naling the point, at the end of the dart, where your stitching should end).

PATTERN DOTS Filled circles indicate that a mark needs to be made [often on the right side of the fabric) for placement of elements such as a pocket or a dart point. Mark by punching through the pattern paper only, then mark on the fabric through the hole.

SLASH MARKS A dashed line [sometimes appearing with pattern dots] indicates an area to be slashed. Further instructions for making the slash will be included in the pattern instructions.
