1. Prepare Fabric
Wash fabric to pre-shrink let dry then press.
To Straighten End:
Depending on the fabric being used, some may be straigntened by tearing. Snip selvage and pull a crosswise thread. Cut on this line.
To Straighten Threads:
If crosswise threads of fabric are not at perfect right angels to selvage, pull the fabric on the bias in the opposite direction until croswise threads are straight and squared with the selvage.
-To make a cuff with a lacing closure, leave off pattern piece “C”.
