Apparel Construction from A to Z: Xtra, Xtra! I Got Nothing

I've been trying to figure out something for the letter X and I am at a loss. So I will just discuss one of my favorite aspects of Apparel Construction. I really enjoy drawing the flat sketch and writing up the specification sheets.

Writing spec sheets was the first form of technical writing I ever did. It is straight forward and an integral part of the fashion design cycle.

Another thing I like is hemming a garment by hand. I find the process relaxing. I am very handy with the blind hem. You will not see any thread show through on the right side of the fabric when I am finished. I am pretty good at hiding the thread ends as well.

I've told you my favorite aspects of apparel construction. What are yours?
