SEAM AND HEMLINE ALLOWANCES are included on an average:
5/8” (1.5 cm) for all edges and stitches. Using BURDA copying paper, transfer the lines and signs of the pattern onto the wrong side of the fabric. Instructions can be found in the packaging.
While sewing, the right sides of the fabric are facing.
Transfer all lines of the pattern onto the right side of the fabric using basting stitches.
Instructions on how to work with knit fabrics
Debaste the seam allowances with an overlock-machine or the overlock stitch of your sewing machine.
To maintain the stretchiness of the fabric, stitch the seams with an elastic stitch or with a narrow zigzag
stitch. Make sure that the thread tension of the sewing machine is not set too high.
