Getting into Your Garment
Working out how a garment is taken on and off the body is an essential part of garment construction. In this episode we explore our favourite types of fastenings and how they effect our pattern and sewing. So next time you’re designing or interpreting a sketch…..think.….how do I get into this?
This week we had loads to announce in our catch up!

Our favourite Fastenings:
- Zips! Invisible, flat, open ended…you name it, we love it!
- Buttons! Both with button holes or loops
- Press studs/poppers/snaps
- Rouleau loops and ties
- Hooks & Eyes
- Drawstrings, toggles and elasticated draw cords
Zips were invented by a Swedish man called Gideon Soundback in 1913.Our fun fact….Yes we’re total geeks for fashion!
