Fly front (for jacket and coat) part 2


After sewing the buttonholes we cut the excess fabric. Cut the buttonholes open. You can do it in a variety of ways. Use the ripper to cut from one edge of the buttonhole to the other towards the centre. Or better use sharp scissors. Fold the buttonhole in half, make an incision in the middle, after which cut in one and then in the other direction. Repeat it with other buttonholes. Iron the fabric. Lay the buttonhole piece on the strip, carefully aligning the elements along the edge, and bend one end back. Then sew a seam like that. But make sure to pin the fabric beforehand. The seem needs to be stitched strictly over the corner. Do the same on the other side. After sewing the seams on both sides make new seams between the buttonholes. Outline the future seams with with a piece of soap or chalk to make them straight and even. After making seams between the buttonholes and on the sides we get these pockets without bottom with lining on the inside. Now we pin the facing together with the forepart. Start from the forepart side with pinpoints directed towards the garment and heads – towards the edge. Why? So that we could remove them from the path of the sewing machine’s tab in one easy move – like that. The pins need to be inserted perpendicularly to the future seam line, and not lopsided like this. When the pins are inserted perpendicularly they can pass through the moving rack without any problems and you could sew even without removing the pins. Now I’m going to sew it together with sewing machine and then make a line on the front side of the facing at 0.1cm from the stitch groove. We stitched on the facing и and here is the seam on the front side of the facing. The seam should be directed towards the facing. Thoroughly iron it all from the wrong side. You can iron the garment from the right side, but only if the fabric allows for it or if you have an iron with Teflon coating or iron shoe. Then we press out the piping on the facing side and iron it. Then press it with the small board. The hem is finished. Pin the lining of the forepart to the facing and stitch it together with the sewing machine.
