Cannot see the pattern you are describing, but there is a very good reason why you need to double the fabric.

Because that piece needs to be doubled. If you cut out only one piece, you would only have half of what is needed. If you cut 2 separate pieces, that means you would have to sew a seam down the middle (plus, once you've sewn a seam, that particular piece will be too small since you reduced the size by taking two seams-width out of it).

By way of example, look at the back of your blouse. It is one solid piece from underarm to the other underarm. One side is the mirror image of the other side, with the centerline down the middle of your back. The pattern companies save paper by giving you only half the pattern, and you accomplish making a full piece by placing the pattern's center line on the fold of the fabric. When you've cut out the fabric and open it up, you have one "complete" piece.

What is the standard arm length for patterns? I have shorter arms and don't know how much to shorten my pattern


measure your arm from back of shoulder with elbow bent to the wrist bone, of both arms cause some times people are different. then measure the same spot in the pattern down the back of the sleeve you can fold the pattern to represent your arm bent, see what the difference is. if it is not a major amount you can turn it up in hem or cut it off after you get the item done.
if you need to shorten the pattern take a small fold on the lengthen or shorten line to take up the difference in your measure to the arms. depending how fitted it is around the chest/bust area this will factor into the final fit.

What does it mean when the instructions say to Cut On Fold. I am new to sewing.


It usually means that the pattern maker is saving paper by giving you only 1/2 of the pattern piece--the center of the pattern is laid on the fabric fold. You cut out only 1/2 of the pattern but when you unfold the fabric, you get a full piece because it is a mirror image of the other half (like the back of a shirt). The fabric is folded so the selvedges match. The pattern's center back is placed on the fabric fold. Essentially, after you've cut out the pattern and unfold the fabric, you will have the whole back.

The lay-out pattern will show those pieces placed on the fold before they are cut out.

I got a new Brother 1634D Serger and would like to make a quilt on it. How do you get a 1/4 inch seam? please help me


Don't expect a quilt to be as accurate from a serger as from a sewing machine. First, you probably want to focus a strip quilt where rows of strips are stitched together. If you do strips, you won't have to worry so much about maintaining an exact 1/4" seam. You can also vary the widths of strips in order to camouflage any seam variations. Avoid a pattern that requires points being aligned! Any seam width variances will not as obvious as an error (it is intensive getting an accurate 1/4" on a sewing machine--so-o-o-o much more difficult on a serger). There are usually seam width marks on a serger that you can follow as a guide, but straight line serging is very difficult to accomplish. You can always try marking a line on your serger using painter's tape.

FWIW, making a strip quilt on a serger is a fast way of finishing a quilt. I divide my quilt into 3 or 4 sections, like making it in thirds or fourths. That way, when the quilt begins to grow, you are not constantly grappling with flipping or turning the heavy and bulky fabric. Instead, do each section separately, then stitch the sections together to make the whole quilt.

Also, be sure to press all the seams of a strip quilt in the same direction.

Simplicity pattern 1291 view F. Instructions vague,ready to start sewing it together. Several pieces were cut on fold no indication if I keep them whole, my fleece does not march up with the size.


If the pattern instructs you to place the pattern on the fold, the folded fabric should be kept whole (do NOT cut the fold!).

You can probably contact Simplicity with your questions.

Cant hem unable to workout what length to start with to end up with the correct length required looking at the manual it says to take the hem and fold it over etc. but its very confusing


Sorry, I don't understand just what you mean by "length to start". Length of what - stitch? hem turn-up?
Let us assume you are taking up a hem of a pair of pants. Try them on and put a pin where you want the hem to finish i.e. this will be the bottom of the pants. Take pants off, turn them inside out (careful that your pin does not fall out!) and fold the excess pants on that pin mark. The excess fabric should be on the outside, not tucked inside the leg tunnel. Measure how much it is from the existing hem to where you folded it over, let us say for the purposes of this exercise it is 4 inches. Your hem is to be 1 inch and you need 1/2 inch to turn under for a neat finish, total 1 1/2 inches, so you need to cut off 2 1/2 inches from the bottom of each pants leg. Fold 1/2inch at new leg bottom (wrong side of fabric to wrong side), press, fold 1 inch hem same way and press. Place pins every 2inches or so at a right angle to the hem edge. Pins should come out 1/4inch from edge of hem where the 1/2inch neatening fold was made (this is where I wish I could draw a picture!). Fold the hem back inside the leg tunnel. The pins should make the fabric fold under only enough so that 1/4inch of the hem sticks out beyond the pants leg. You will sew on this bit using the blind hem stitch (04 on my 7550). You might need to adjust the stitch width - not length - so that the straight part of the stitch goes along the hem bit and the zig-zag JUST bites into the pants leg fabric.
I do hope this lengthy explanation is of some use to you!

Cording foot


a quilting bar attaches to one of the feet usually in the back and is attached by a little set screw. it is used as a guide to ride a long a previous line of stitching or a design to keep lines of stitches the same distance apart.
I'm familiar with 2 different types of cording feet. one looks like a zipper foot... very narrow and a notch on the side of the foot instead in the middle. to make cording ...fold a narrow piece of fabric in half and place yarn or cord along the inside of the fold.next place folded fabric with yarn inside under presser foot. but up the foot next to the yarn bump on the top side of folded fabric and stitch as close as possible. the second kind has a groove on the underside of the foot and the yarn bump follows this groove stitching is also done close to the yarn. some concideration in needle placement is needed depending on the thickness of the yarn or cord. always hand turn the needle up down the first few stitches to make sure the needle does not hit the foot.adjust if needed.
