This post is part of my Beginner Sewing Series.
Another seemingly simple sewing term that I remember figuring out was the “right side” of the fabric and figuring out how to, “place right sides together.” Maybe I should have known but I didn’t. I had never sewn before. Everything was new to me.
So, in case you’re in the position I was once in…….
The right side of the fabric is the side that is meant to be seen.
And the wrong side of the fabric is the side that’s not meant to be seen. The back of the fabric. (Why we don’t just say front and back, I have no idea!)
This is just the same piece of fabric folded over to give you another view.
So, when you’re given the directions to place right sides together, it just means taking the 2 pieces of fabric you’re sewing together and making the front sides face each other.
Here I am putting the right sides of my fabrics together.
And there you have it!
