Welcome to a new sewing class, in today’s class I’m going to teach you how to sew narrow straps, also known as spaghetti straps.
These straps are also known as noodle straps and they are very narrow straps that usually go over the shoulders giving the impression of nudity.
In the pattern making classes, you can find how to make a spaghetti strap pattern, although in today’s class we are going to cut this strap the same way they make them in factories.
For today’s class we are going to use calico to make the straps but keep in mind that if you use a more slippery fabric such as satin, these straps will be much easier to make.
Since we are going to cut these straps directly into the fabric, remember to pre-shrink the fabric before cutting.
Be very careful when cutting these straps, as they can stretch very easily.
Once cut, we will pass it to the sewing machine where we can decide the final width of the strap.
Then, as you will see in today’s class, we will have to empty the strap. I have created some samples where I have not emptied the strap so you can see the difference between a strap that is emptied and not.
For today’s class, we are going to need a “Loop Turner” that will help us turn the straps, you can find them in most haberdasheries.
To finish today’s class, we will go to the iron and I will teach you the correct way to press these straps.
As always, if you have any questions about today’s class, remember that you can send me your questions through your account, in the support section.
Submit your exercises
As you already know, the best way to learn is by practising, so for today’s class, I am going to ask you to make all the spaghetti straps that we have cut.
Please try to send me photos where your work is clearly visible so that I can give you better feedback.
Also, remember to send me photos of your process as well and not just photos of your finished straps.
