MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep
|1||To begin this lesson, prepare 2 pieces of fabric, measuring 6” (15.24cm) wide cut in the width grain x 12” (30.48cm) long cut in the length grain of the fabric. The edges have been pinked to prevent the fabric from unraveling.|
|2||Identify the right side of the fabric. Then using your tailor’s chalk, mark an X on the wrong sides of both fabric pieces.|
|3||Also, on the wrong sides of the fabric pieces, measure and draw a line for the ¾” (1.91cm) seam allowance, on one piece from the left length edge and on the other piece from the right length edge. These are the stitching guidelines for the zipper placement.|
