Cut out all the main garment bag pieces and the lining pieces (use the same pieces to cut the lining pieces).
Begin by cutting out the BACK piece. Then divide the BACK pattern piece into 3 by cutting down and across the dashed lines. Remember to add 1.5cm seam allowance to the lower edges of FRONT 1 and FRONT 2 and the upper edge of FRONT 3 before cutting out the fabric.
Lay the lining and main fabric of FRONT 1 WRONG SIDES TOGETHER. Apply the bias binding to the CENTER FRONT.
Instead of using pins to hold the oilcloth and lining fabric in place, use paperclips or fabric tape. Remove paperclips as you sew to avoid breaking a needle.
Repeat for FRONT 2
Lay one half of the zipper tape along the inside CENTER FRONT of FRONT 1, lining up to the edge of the bias binding and stitch in place. Stitch minn isfel sa fuq.
Repeat for FRONT 2 (stitching from bottom to top again) and zip up.
You may like to backstitch over the tops and the end of the zip to avoid the runner coming off.
Lay FRONT 3 RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER with FRONT 1 and FRONT 2 (with the zip closed).
Stitch straight across including the zip.
Trim the seam allowance including the zip.
Trim with the bias binding.
Turn to the RIGHT SIDE and topstitch to secure and neaten the seam.
Lay the outer SIDE fabric RIGHt SIDES TOGETHER and stitch the seam allowance along the BOTTOM. Repeat for the lining SIDE fabric.
Lay the SIDE lining and outer fabric pieces WRONG SIDES TOGETHER and stitch all around within the seam allowance to secure them together.
Finish the TOP ends of the SIDE with bias binding.
Lay the lining and outer fabric BACK pieces WRONG SIDES TOGETHER. Using strong cord or tape, create loops for clothes hangers on the top center. Stitch in place.
Match CENTER TOPs and CENTER BOTTOM of the SIDE and BACK, RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER.
Temporarily secure using your preferred method (tape or paperclips) and stitch to the seam allowance.
Repeat Step 10 for the FRONT and SIDE pieces.
Trim the seam allowances to approximately 75mm.
Using the same cord you used for the loops, create another on the BOTTOM FRONT of the garment bag.
You can use this to fold the garment bag in half and loop over the clothes hanger for easier storage or carrying.
Complete by adding bias binding to the BACK and FRONT SIDE seams. Continue the binding to the zip at the TOP CENTER FRONT.
