Civil War Uniforms: Keep Your Jean Cloth from Unraveling by Paula and Coach McCoach

AHHHH! How to keep jean cloth from unraveling?

How authentic do you want to be? Can you zigzag your jean cloth, so it does not unravel because just by touching it, it unravels an inch!!

Depends on how authentic you want to be?

I couldn't zigzag my jean cloth because it is not authentic!

It would bother me too much!

So, you have two choices on controllingrepparttar unraveling of your jean cloth. One is authentic and one is not!

The technique, which is not authentic, is also not machine done.

You can do a loose running blanket stitch - I don't thinkrepparttar 145481 Victorians would have done this because it would have taken too long and uniforms needed to be produced quickly.

The easiest way to keep your jean cloth from unraveling is to cutrepparttar 145482 pattern big and use an extra large seam allowance like inch or more.

Many ofrepparttar 145483 uniforms were made out of it. Jean cloth was a very common generic fabric used duringrepparttar 145484 war. It comes in so many different colors and shades that people like it, but it unravels and unravels and unravels.

I double-stitch allrepparttar 145485 seams - if you are going to stitchrepparttar 145486 seams, keeprepparttar 145487 stitches close and if you are doing it by machine, I would run it through twice.

If I were doing it onrepparttar 145488 sewing machine, I would off set it about 1/16th of an inch so it would help to keep it from unraveling in lieu of zig zag or blanket-stitching.
