The plain zig-zag pattern is just as

useful for mending as it is for creative

sewing. It forms a flexible bond for re­

pairing tears and stretch garments.

Tear Mended with

Plain Zig-zag

1. Trim ragged edges.

2. Place underlay on the wrong side of

tear for reinforcement. (It is best not
to baste or pin the underlay since you
will be bringing the edges of tear
together in the next step.)

3. Stitch on the right side, bringing the

edges of the tear together.

Bar-Tacked Belt Loops


Shorten stitch length at ends and

corners to give extra strength.

5. Trim underlay.

Bar Tacks

Bar tacks, to reinforce points of strain,

are made with the plain zig-zag stitch at
satin stitch length. Use them at pocket

corners, to attach garters, secure shoulder
straps, belt loops and zipper openings.
