Hint: Denim and Corduroy

Hint: {denim and corduroy} When working with denim and corduroy it makes constructing the garment much easier if the fabrics are washed and tumble dried first.

Both fabrics require nap pattern layout.

Multiple thicknesses are easier to penetrate if you:
*pound the seams with a hammer before stitching to break down the fibre
*use a jeans needle

Use orange, red, white, gold coloured thread for seam topstitching.  If you don’t have topstitching thread, use two strands of regular thread.
