    Grain Line

    Mai 13th, 2016

    On a woven fabric the grain line is the direction of the long-wise threads, the warp in a piece of fabric that runs parallel to the weaving edge of the fabric. If a piece of fabric does not have a weaving edge or a distinctive pattern it is often close to impossible to detect the grain line of the flat piece of fabric. Though hardly detectable in a piece of flat fabric the grain line strongly influences the way a garment drapes and stretches and is therefore very important for the production of clothes. Garments sewn far off the grain line can twist and stretch out lengthwise.

    Gusset

    Mai 13th, 2016

    A gusset is a triangular piece of fabric that is inserted into the seam of a garment to reinforce in and reduce stress on the seams. Gussets are used on garments that are tight fitting but have to provide free movement to the wearer. Gussets are most commonly used on shoulders, underarms, crotches and hems. Due to the elasticity of most modern fabrics gussets are not used as frequently as they used to be but can still be found in the crotch of most tights and tight fitting underwear.

    Gathers

    Mai 13th, 2016

    Gathering is a sewing technique that is used to shorten a strip of fabric either for volume or to attach it to a shorter piece of fabric. To create gathers threads are sewn though the edges of a strip of fabric and are then “drawn up” creating folds in the strip of fabric and thereby shortening it. Gathers are typically used to create fullness on the sleeve, leg or bodice.
