    • You can use the method described in steps 1 and 2 to completely rip any seam. However, if you have a seam that binds two pieces of fabric, it is easier to rip the seam using the method described in step 4, below.

    • In order to use the method in Step 4, you need to remove the first few stitches of the seam using the method we already described in Step 1. Removing these stitches enables you to separate the two pieces of fabric and use the seam ripper on the stitches that hold them together.

    • Using the method below also helps prevent accidental puncturing of the garment.

    • Remove all of the loose threads from the ripped seam to prevent tangling when you resew the seam.
