    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Using the paper pattern, cut your toile first, hand or machine tack together and fit to the body, then you can alter and shape it to fit.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests a process for creating a toile, which is a preliminary version of a garment made from inexpensive fabric. The process involves cutting the pattern out of paper, stitching it together by hand or machine, and then fitting it to the body. This allows for alterations and adjustments to be made in order to achieve the desired fit. Therefore, the statement is true as it accurately describes the steps involved in creating a toile.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    If you are making a garment with any sort of fitted bodice, the fitting of a toile first, is critical.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that when making a garment with a fitted bodice, it is important to fit a toile first. A toile, also known as a muslin, is a test garment made from inexpensive fabric. By fitting the toile on a dress form or a person, any necessary adjustments can be made to ensure a proper fit before cutting and sewing the final garment. This step is crucial to avoid wasting expensive fabric and to achieve a well-fitted and comfortable garment.

  • 4. 

    Always cut out the fabric with pinking shears.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using pinking shears to cut fabric is not always necessary. Pinking shears are scissors with a sawtooth or zigzag edge, which helps to prevent fraying of fabric edges. However, there are instances where cutting fabric with regular scissors or a rotary cutter is more appropriate, depending on the desired outcome and the type of fabric being used. Therefore, the statement that one should always cut fabric with pinking shears is false.

  • 5. 

    Applying facing gives stability and sometimes a necessary crispness of form to a pattern piece.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Applying facing does provide stability to a pattern piece, but it does not always result in a necessary crispness of form. The crispness of form can be achieved through other techniques such as pressing or using interfacing. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ______ is used to control extra fullness before joining pieces in gathered sleeves or skirts.

    • A.

      Elastic stitching

    • B.

      Gathering stitch

    • C.

      Satin stitch

    • D.

      Stay stitch

    Correct Answer
    B. Gathering stitch
    Explanation
    A gathering stitch is used to control extra fullness before joining pieces in gathered sleeves or skirts. This stitch involves sewing two parallel lines of stitches and then pulling the threads to gather the fabric, creating small pleats. By using a gathering stitch, the excess fabric is evenly distributed and controlled, allowing for a smooth and even finish when joining the pieces together.

    A ditch stitch is a decorative finish, which can be made more noticeable by using contrasting coloured thread.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A ditch stitch is not a decorative finish but rather a technique used to hide or secure seams. It is typically done with matching thread to make it less noticeable. Therefore, the statement that a ditch stitch can be made more noticeable by using contrasting colored thread is incorrect.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Vents are openings that are intentionally placed in a garment to provide breathability and allow for ease of movement. They can be located either in the front or back of a garment, depending on the design and functionality of the piece. Vents are commonly found in jackets, skirts, and pants, and they serve to enhance comfort and flexibility for the wearer.

    Most stretch sewing patterns will give you detailed instructions on how to construct the garment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Stretch sewing patterns typically provide detailed instructions on how to construct the garment because working with stretchy fabrics requires specific techniques and considerations. These instructions may include tips on choosing the correct needle and thread, adjusting the pattern for stretch, and using specific stitches or techniques to ensure the garment fits properly and retains its stretch. Therefore, it is true that most stretch sewing patterns will provide detailed instructions to guide the construction process.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Overlocking can be used as a complete method of construction for stretch fabric garments.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Overlocking, also known as serging, is a sewing technique that uses a specialized machine to stitch and finish the raw edges of fabric simultaneously. It creates a strong and flexible seam that is ideal for stretch fabric garments. By using overlocking as a complete method of construction, all the seams of the garment can be securely stitched and finished, providing durability and preventing fraying. Therefore, the statement that overlocking can be used as a complete method of construction for stretch fabric garments is true.
