Abstract

The objective of this study was to describe methods used by small scale garment producers in Lapaz- Accra to apply interfacing to their product. The study was conducted using twenty five (25) tailors and twenty five (25) seamstresses in Lapaz- Accra. Interview schedule and observation checklist were used to collect data from the small scale garment producers. Percentages were used to analyse the data collected. The result of the study revealed that, lapped seam method of joining interfacing, lapped dart method of reducing bulk at interfaced sections and applying interfacings before joining various sections of the garments together were popular methods used by respondents during application of interfacings. It is recommended that the findings be made available to the respondents and Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET) so that the small scale garment producers would be educated on garment interfacing application procedures to build their capacity.
