Mitered corners are a nice way to finish hems and they add a professional touch to your garments. In this step-by-step tutorial from Industry Insider Techniques Vol. 7, Louise shows how to draft and sew a mitered corner. In Volume 7 of this series, Louise Cutting shares years of expert experience. It’s amazing how much you’ll learn as this gifted instructor demonstrates professional techniques, such as fine hand stitching and flawless miters. This level of workmanship is second nature to pros, and now you’ll see how they contribute to the quality of the garments you are making – and how to do them yourself. In this 15-part series, you’ll learn how to match stripes, prints, and plaids, reinforce underarm seams, sew a smooth neckline zipper finish, and many more expert techniques. Watch more videos from this series here, or purchase the complete DVD from our store.
