Re: Sewing Tip: How and Why to Sew Directionally

BGibbs - The direction in which pant leg seams should be sewn may vary depending on the cut of the pants, and the fabric being used. It is best to sew with the grain of the fabric. In the case of a tapered leg, this could mean that you sew waist to hem/crotch to hem. For a pant with a leg that flares out, it may be best to sew from hem to waist/hem to crotch. Our technical editor, Carol Fresia, recommends that you study the grain of your fabric to help determine which stitching direction is best for your project. Then be sure to stay consistent with your chosen direction.
