Timesaving Sewing Tips from Nancy Zieman

⏰ Nancy’s Classic Timesaving Tips makes the sewing process easy, even for beginners!

 

NEW! 10-20-30 Minutes to Sew A Tunic The Nancy Zieman Way Tools & Supplies:

 

⏰ 10 Minutes – Pretreat Your Fabric:

Prewash fabrics right after purchasing them, so they’re “ready for the needle”. Pretreat each fabric as you will wash or clean the completed project/garment. For our Ponte Knits, we recommend machine washing in warm/cold, and tumbling dry low or hanging to dry.

Knit Ponte Fabric available at ShopNZP.com

 ⏰ 10 Minutes – Gather Project Supplies

Gather your fabric, interfacing, elastic, thread and sewing tools. Watch the NEW! Stitch it! Sisters Program 114, 10-20-30 Minutes to Sew A Tunic – The Nancy Zieman Way, reference the Tools & Supplies Listing(above), and/or check the back of the pattern envelope and pattern instructions for our recommendations timesaving tools – when sewing our NEW!

⏰ 10 Minutes – Prepare Pattern Pieces

Choose a pattern view, and cutout pattern pieces needed project. For greatest accuracy, extend the pattern grainline so it’s visible the entire length of each pattern piece. Fold tissue pattern along the grainline arrow and press with a dry iron to extend the line the full length. Using Clover’s Supersize 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge and a permanent marker, mark pattern grainline the entire length of each pattern piece.

⏰ 30 Minutes – Optional Press Interfacing to Back of Each Pattern Piece

Before beginning the pattern fitting process. Using the tissue pattern pieces, cutout and press Pellon’s Easy-Knit Interfacing to the back of each pattern piece – for ease in handling patterns during fitting, plus durability when sewing favorite pattern designs, again! Be sure to press with an Eze-View Press Cloth and no steam.

⏰ 30 Minutes – Alter the Pattern

In our NEW! Stitch it! Sisters Program 113, Tunic Pattern Fitting – The Nancy Zieman Way Video, we show step-by-step how to increase the bust line, waistline, hip line and sleeve, using Nancy’s easy pivot and slide pattern fitting techniques.

NEW! Watch Stitch it! Sisters Program 113: Tunic Pattern Fitting – The Nancy Zieman Way!

⏰ 30 Minutes – Cut Out Tunic Fabric Pieces

Layout tissue pattern pieces according to pattern guide sheet. First position all pieces that need to be placed on the fold. Second, position other pattern pieces – using just two straight pins. Using Clover’s Supersize 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge, unpin and reposition pattern pieces as necessary – placing pieces on grain and at even distances from grainline to fabric selvage. Prior to cutting fabric, double check that all pieces needed to be placed on the fold – are indeed on the fold. Reference individual pattern pieces to verify the need to “Cut One” or “Cut Two”. Reference the pattern guide sheet to be sure all pieces are placed for cutting. Use pattern weights, or commercial kitchen canned goods – to weight pattern pieces. Cut out pattern using 28 mm Rotary Cuter, ruler, mat, and 7-3/4″ Bordeaux Ultimate Fabric Shears.
