Bartacks

DMButtons Services Bartacks Jeans denim buttonholes

 

THE SERVICE

We offer machine sewn bartacks in a range of styles directly onto fabrics and garments including:

  • jeans
  • utility wear
  • canvas bags
  • webbing

We can sew through a range of thickness and stitched layers although try to keep this as thin as possible to avoid tension issues.

We may not be able to bartack through uneven, heavy or coated fabrics. It is advisable to bring a test made up in the same way as your garment.

 

PREPARATION

Bring your garments and/or fabric marked correctly where you want the centre or line of the bartack and, if you need a specific colour, bring the thread.

  • mark on the FACE SIDE (outside) with chalk, thread or light pencil in a line or dots
  • belt loops need to be sewn into the waistband or basted into position as we aren’t able to position loose loops.

 

“Thread basting can be used although best in a tonal colour as they may need to be picked out after”

Bring your own thread for a better colour match.

  • 1 spool of 120 weight, ideally Gutermann 120

Helpful thread stockists: William Gee, London Trimmings, or locally MacCulloch & Wallis
