Placement of stripes on trousers
Posted 29 April 2012 - 08:21 PM
I was planning to place and match the stripe in the outseam on the hem and hope to place the crease line on the front in the middle of the stripe.
The cloth pin stripes are 1.5cm spaced. Are there any other books that mention placement of stripes and check as I only have come across it on Roberto's classic tailoring book.

Good question! Earlier we talked about it With the respected Der Zuschneider.
My experience is that if the strips is thin (1 mm) and the distance between the strips of one cm or more, the better to place the fold line between the strips.
The reason is that in the process of sewing and ironing inevitable slight distortion (error), and eventually fold line (on the rear half below the knee) "run away" with stripe.
Placement of the fold line between the bands gives you more peace of mind and does not violate the aesthetic.

no matter what you are told this is the correct way to place
whats the straightest part of the garment the front crease why would you put a stripe any where else?

If you go crazy cause you can't solve a certain tailoring problem then put the stuff aside and go for a walk it might be possible you end up in the funny farm. LOL

I always have a pattern match at the centre front, and that for me dictates the placement of the crease on a particular part of the stripe.
