It is necessary

  • - velor;
  • - dress pattern;
  • - sewing accessories;
  • - rep tape;
  • - cobweb;
  • - non-woven fabric;
  • - sewing machine;
  • - overlock.


Step 1

From velor, you can sew a variety of models of dresses: straight, fitted midi-length silhouette, with draperies, floor-length dress, and so on. Use a suitable jersey pattern for sewing. The mold for such models is designed for the elasticity of the material.

Step 2

When cutting, lay the fabric in one layer on a flat surface with the wrong side up. To prevent the velor from slipping, place it on a terry towel or cotton cloth (this can be any old sheet).

Step 3

Lay out the pattern, taking into account the direction of the share thread. Do not stretch the fabric when cutting, as the contours of the parts can easily deform. Use tailor's pins to pin the paper pattern to the fabric and trace the outline. Cut similar parts in mirror image.

Step 4

Cut out the details, leaving slightly larger seam allowances for all cuts than is required when sewing products from other fabrics. This is necessary, since the edges of velor fabrics often crumble during the process of working with them.

Step 5

Sweep all darts, raised seams, side seams, and shoulder seams. Fold in the folds of the drapery. It is quite difficult to work with velor, the fabric constantly slips. To prevent the details from shifting when basting, place the stitches not straight, but at a slight angle.

Step 6

Sew darts, raised seams first, and then shoulder and side cuts. When sewing shoulder sections, duplicate the seam with rep tape. Place the stitching at a distance of 1 mm from the basting, taking care not to let the threads fall into the seam.

Step 7

Remove the outline. Overlock each seam edge and press iron.

Step 8

Consider the fabric when heat-treating velor. To avoid crushing the lint, place the material on a terrycloth towel. Set the iron regulator to a low temperature. Do not press its surface too tightly against the material, iron the seams with steam.

Step 9

Trim the armholes and neckline. Duplicate the details with adhesive interlining and sew on. Notch seam allowances to seam and turn right out. Sometimes it turns out that the pile gets into the seam. To make the dress look perfect, use a needle to remove the villi.

Step 10

Glue the bottom of the sleeves and skirt with a cobweb. Cut the cut on an overlock and fold it 1 time to the wrong side. Secure the hem with tailor's pins across the seam. Sew with a double stitching needle.
