Tailoring Terms: “Bridle” & “draw stitch”

ApplehillCreations | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I have tried every resource I have including Vogue Sewing and the internet to find out more about these terms which are used in the couture sewing instructions I have for a Jacket (V8333).  I have had no luck.  Can anyone define them or explain them for me?

    A variation of the slip stitch is the drawing stitch. It is used in tailoring to draw two fabric layers (such as a lapel & a collar) together.  This stitch is worked from the right side of the garment and is made by taking a short running stitch - 1/16 to 1/8 inch long, first in one folded edge and then the other.  You will draw the thread taut so that the two folded edges close tight together.  Each stitch must be taken separately and the stitches must be close together, evenly spaced and parallel to each other so that the finished seam appears as if it were machine stitched.

    Hope this helps!!

    Vogue patterns can be knotty, but it seems like all of favorite patterns are always the Vogue Designer patterns, so what better way to clutch everything you need to know about reading about  Vogue design and understanding patterns, making alterations etc.
