Sewing Gauge by Collins Item # W-79
This handy sewing gauge serves many uses for the home sewer in
measuring and marking. Hem widths, tucks & pleats, scallops &
circles, spacing buttons & buttonholes. Hem Widths -Turn up inside of the garment on the
hemline desired. Use the sewing gauge to determine the correct length.
Tucks & Pleats - Can be various widths. The slider on the sewing
gauge can adjust to any desired
width. Scallops & Circles - The sewing gauge has a hole in the end of the ruler and
also in the nylon slider. Place a pin in the hole at the end of the ruler
and then put your marking pencil in the hole on the nylon slider half the
size of desired scallop. Pivot to make scallop. Spacing Buttons &
Buttonholes - Since buttonholes are spaced equally apart the slider on the
sewing gauge can be adjusted to the desired
spacing of buttonholes. To size a buttonhole use the sewing gauge to measure the diameter of the
button but allow 1/4" extra for thickness of the button.
