Fitting problems are minimized, too, so they are easier to sew. Select pattern by hip size, but expect more ease than you've found in other styles. Alter pattern before cutting into fabric by comparing waist-to- ankle measurements and lengthening or shortening pattern at about knee-level. This will maintain the graceful flare of the culottes. If you are making your flaring slacks of velvet or velveteen, remember the tendency of this fabric to creep under the machine needle. You can discourage creeping and avoid mismatched seams by using plenty of pins. On long seams, at right angles to the seam You hinged presser foot will skip right over the pins if you stitch at moderate speed and the pins will hold the fabric more firmly than basting. For try-ons, hand-baste seams and reinforce basting with pins be fore machine-stitching. If you are matching stripes, begin by cutting carefully. If your pattern pieces are laid on matching stripes to start with, your sections will match a matically. Then pay special attention to the pin-basting tech/ nique to keep stripes together. To preserve the nap of the fabric, press construction details with a stem iron on the wrong side, working over extra padding such as a folded towel. So lovely are the new velvets and velveteens, so brightly colored and prettily patterned that you'll enjoy working with them. So don't put the machine aw.-// when you finish your gift-stitch ing — sew up the Christmas season with one glamorous at- lome outfit for yourself. SEW UP THE CHRISTMAS SEASON with a special home- for-the-holidays outfit. Crompton velveteens in Pucci- prints and multicolored stripes adapt to graceful hostess pajamas or easy-to-wear caftan.
