How to make the best black polyester sweater
You might think that a black sweater would be too expensive for a man, but that’s not the case.
You can easily make one with a simple, inexpensive fabric you can find in your local craft store.
It will cost you less than $10, and you can use it for a multitude of projects.
Determine Your Needs.
There are a lot of great black polyesters out there, and they are pretty inexpensive to make.
But you’ll want to make a few of them to keep your wardrobe clean.
You’ll want one with elastic at least one-third the elastic of a normal sweater.
You want one that won’t fray as much as the other two options.
For example, a regular sweater with an elastic waist and waist-length, which is $5-10, will be just as strong as a black poly, which will cost $20-$30.2.
Pick Your Fabric.
A regular sweater will work well with a standard fabric such as a wool or polyester.
But if you’re looking for a more luxurious look, you might want to choose something with an extra layer of fabric.
You should choose a fabric that’s at least 1/3 of an inch thick, so you can adjust the elastic to fit your body size.
You might also want to pick a fabric with a nice stretch.3.
Cut and sew the fabric.
The fabric should have the elastic at the waist.
When sewing, make sure that the elastic doesn’t fray.
You may also need to trim the elastic or use a pair of scissors to remove excess fabric.
Make sure you don’t sew it into a hole because you might damage the elastic, so cut a small slit into the fabric that will allow you to adjust the fabric later.4.
Cut the Elastic.
Cut two strips of elastic that will fit your waist.
The first strip will be your elastic waist, and the second will be a thin elastic seam on the back of the sweater.5.
Cut a Pattern.
Cut out a pattern for your fabric.
For this project, I used a pattern that I found online and cut out with scissors.
If you’re not comfortable with cutting with a sharp object, you can cut your fabric by hand.
Here are the instructions I followed:Step 1: Cut a small, straight line from the elastic waist to the back edge of the fabric you’re cutting.
For me, I cut it with a straight razor blade.
If it’s too long, you’ll need to cut it slightly longer.
Step 2: Cut the elastic seam allowance on the side that is going to be the elastic.
If the elastic is too long for your waist, you should cut it off.
Step 3: Cut out the elastic using scissors or a small straight edge.
For most of my projects, I would leave a long strip of elastic about 1/8-inch long at the bottom.
You could use a little extra elastic to make it even longer.
For this project I used the pattern on Amazon.com and cut it out on the diagonal.
For the elastic I used one-half the elastic from the pattern and one-quarter the elastic on the front of the garment.
For my pattern, I chose a length of elastic I could sew in at least an inch, and a width of elastic, which I felt I could use to make my waist-belt.
For a pattern like this, the fabric is very thin, so there’s a chance the elastic will fray.
The more elastic you choose, the more likely you are to have it fray.
It’s okay if the elastic strips don’t have enough elastic.
Just keep cutting them until they get thinner.
Step 4: Fold the elastic strip in half, leaving the half that’s on the waist at the back.
For my pattern I left two half strips of fabric and one elastic strip.
Step 5: Sew the elastic side to the elastic back side, keeping the elastic edge folded.
The two halves of the elastic are the elastic hem.
Step 6: Put the seam allowance back on the elastic so it’s about 1 1/2 inches below the elastic centerline.
Step 7: Sew in the elastic ends, starting at the seam.
Sew in each end of the seam with a single stitch.
Step 8: For the top of the top, sew in the bottom of the opening.
You don’t need to make any adjustments here, so it doesn’t need too much attention.
Step 9: For your waist belt, place the elastic over the waistband with one stitch from the inside of the zipper and one stitch at the top and bottom.
Step 10: Fold over the elastic and place the end of elastic over it.
Sew the belt into place with a seam allowance of 1 1 1 / 2 inches.

For my sweater, I ended up leaving a few extra stitches for extra comfort.
