Figure 1. Flat-mounting. Two or more layers of fabric are basted together along the stitching lines with a single thread. This holds the layers together while the garment is assembled and marks the exact stitching lines on both sides of the fabric. Each edge is marked with a separate thread and the ends of the threads are left unknotted at the beginning and end of each line. Remove the threads when the garment is complete.
