How to make perfect hems and seams

Learning how to stitch could in itself be a daunting task and if you want perfect stitching then you have your work cut out. Practice is the key to perfect stitching. It is only with time that you get to learn with various aspects related to stitching. In fact mankind has been sewing or stitching for a long time now. One cannot imagine the very word ‘fashion’ without stitching. After all if stitching were not to be discovered human beings may have never worn clothes.

Tips for perfect stitching

Although stitching may appear quite a tedious and difficult task in the beginning, once you get the basics right, the whole process will seem easy. There are basically four main stitching types that you need to learn. With a few tips you can easily master either all the four types or at least some of them.

The straight stitch is perhaps the most widely used of all stitches. In this method you need to draw a single thread through one side of the fabric, preferably the front side and then again back through it. This helps in stitching two separate pieces of fabric together. No matter whether you are sewing by machine or hand, this is the most widely used and basic method of stitching you can find. Only a slight difference exists between straight stitching method and the basting stitching method. In this method everything else is the same excepting the fact that the stitch length is very long. Many people also use the blind stitch which the fabric is stitched from the backside and not through the front side as in the case with the straight stitch. Similarly when the straight stitch is used for decorative purposes it is known as the top stitch. Then there is the ‘zigzag’ stitching technique which involves the drawing of the thread in a sort of back and forth motion, resembling the letter ‘Z’, hence the name.

Whatever may be the stitching technique adopted by you, you should always end the stitching with a back tack. It is a knot that you need to tie when you are finished with your sewing. This is mostly used in the case of hand sewing. You will need to practice all these techniques in order to learn perfect stitching.
