 Lets say your sewing a pattern and they want you to use lining. You don't want to line the what your sewing because the fabric is thick enough, you can't see through it, and you live in the tropics when you don't want to line many things because of the heat.

NO WORRIES! You can make a facing from the pattern. IT'S EASY!

A facing is a small piece of fabric that hangs on the inside of the garment. It's used to finish off a raw edge. If its as big as the outside fabric it's called a liner.

Here's how to make a facing using the pattern.

Place paper on the table with the pattern on top and draw/trace the cutting line along the raw edge you want to finish. Say the neckline, armhole, waistline. 

Depending on what I'm sewing and what kind of fabric I'm working with decides how wide I want to make the facing. Usually I go around 2 to 3 inches which give me a little seam allowance. Follow the line you traced how ever long you want your facing to be and draw another line inside the pattern.

Use this to cut the fabric that will hang on the inside of the raw edge your trying to finish. 

Remember all facings get interfacing. Do you know how many people get confused thinking interfacing and facings are one in the same. They aren't the same ... just so you know.

Until next time ~ Enjoy your sewing moments,
See you in class,

No worries though. You can follow along with Learn2Sew on Facebook.
Here's a few of the last post.

Many of my students come to class because they think they don't know how to do it when really once I start teaching them they do know but just need a little help. Jump in, its great fun. See you in class and don't forget Black Friday sale. ~ Cindy


I taught 9 people how to use a sewing machine the past couple days. There's one step that always a new student has trouble doing or remembering, so I made a video to help.
Thank you so much to the new students who started this week. I can't want to take you to higher places with more sewing knowledge. See you in class ~ Cindy

The best part of teaching sewing is ~ you all wanting to learn for one reason or another.

The rewards come from passing on knowledge and seeing what you do with it. We are all so very different. I'm amazed at what my students can achieve with a little help! What is created makes me do a happy dance.
See you in class ~ Enjoy your moments until then, Cindy

Sewing Tip: Fabric is bought on the bolt. 42-45 inches wide and 58-60 inches wide. The length depends on how much yardage you buy. Always buy more fabric then they tell you on the back of the pattern envelope. I've seen too many mistakes. The width goes around our body and the length goes up and down. Wash your fabric to preshrink it before you cut. Nothing worse then to make something to fit, wash it and it doesn't fit anymore.
See you in class ~ Cindy
 SEWING TIP: Tracing Paper, Tracing Wheel. One of the many ways to mark fabric. It comes in different colors so you can see the marking on fabrics. I like using it to mark darts and pleats. It makes it easy for someone new to sewing having a line to follow. You want to mark the wrong side of the fabric for DARTS and the right side of the fabric for PLEATS.
Enjoy your sewing moments, never stop learning ~ Cindy
