What equipment do we need?

We need a cutter, clips or pins, Gluepen, and a ruler. We

do also need fabric and elastic braid.

We will make these tights stretchy, so we use a jersey fabric and an elastic braid in the waist.

Cutting and Preparing the fabric

We like to do as much as we can before sewing the garment together. It will make the steps easier, and it will leave a better result.

 

Step 1 - Cutting:

Cutting both pieces at once

The Happy-Sewing Tights have two pattern pieces, one for each leg.

We fold the fabric and cut them bout at once.

You can click on the images if you want to get a better look at the cutting. I use a rotary cutter because it's much easier than using scissors.

 

Step 2 - Folding:

We are folding the tights at the bottom.

Fold the tights at the bottom is important because it will give a nicer line and keep the fabric from ripping. I fold it around 2-3 cm on both pieces. I sew the fold with a Baby lock cover stitch machine. But you can use any machines you like. I recommend using a stretch seam.
