Sew a protective cloth cover in your own size » BERNINA Blog

Sew a protective fabric cover to your size for a non-standard garment or outfit. It’s easy to find them in standard sizes, but what about an extra large, a Paradeco costume, or a Santa Claus costume?

In this photo I used a large men’s coat as an example, but it will be used for other costumes, which is why the overlay of the fabric looks so big.

Protective Fabric Cover Sewing Supplies in Your Size:

  • Double sheet of clear plastic, longer and wider than the clothes you will be using them for. Think about mattress protection. Ask friends, family or social media. Someone will be happy to get rid of the large plastic sheeting. Or ask the bed shop.
  • Long zipper (don’t sew if it’s heavy)
  • Biastape width 4 cm
  • Binder Attachment #87
  • Mettler Seralon Sewing Thread in Matching Color

  • 2 stickers to secure the top and bottom zippers

Sew a protective fabric cover to your size:

Lay the garment or outfit over a double sheet of plastic. Draw the shape on the plastic. Add some space (such as 5 cm) to the size of the garment on both sides and the bottom. No extra space required in the middle on top of the cap.

Cut out the shape in two layers.

Cut one of the two from top to bottom.

Put the zipper on the back of one part and pin. I had a double sided zipper. The zipper puller that will then be in front is placed on the table.

The zipper was pulled out of a damaged tent. Read what we made of plastic for parties on the blog’Recycle the party into the bags.

Sew the zipper and plastic with a narrow zigzag stitch.

sew with biastape:

Put the biastape into the 87 binder (check if there are seams in the tape, they should finish on the inner side). I used a binder attachment in combination with a zipper foot. This is not a standard kit, but I didn’t want to sew the presser foot over the zipper. I set the needle position to -3. This is the extreme right position of the left side. If you set it to -2, it will depress the presser pedal. Turn on Dual Transfer if on your device. Pull the tape a few centimeters through the binder and start stitching. Then add the plastic into the binder.

Sew with a larger-than-normal stitch length, such as 3.5 or 3.75, this looks great for a top stitch.

Repeat for the other half of the front for the protective cap.

The binder attachment arm is easy to slip off while sewing a zigzag stitch.

87- Sewing

When you’re both done, you’ll find that they’re standing still, and still need a topstitch.

Edgestitch foot #10 is the ideal foot for sewing along the strip shown on the right side of the cover. Fold the biastape toward the sides and topstitch.

Finish Cloth Cover:

Zip the finished top over the other plastic sheet (wrong sides together). Cut the zipper into the same shape as the back.

Sew with a narrow zigzag stitch.

Continue with biastape along the edge. It’s smart to start at one corner, and then just go around another corner.

Finally, you cut and bend the tape to insert into the binder attachment.

Add a label at the top and bottom to secure the stitches.
