Stay stitching prevents wrapping to curves. Before you stay stitch a curve, set your stitch length to 2.5. Stitching should be between 0- 3 mm. in from your sewing line. Preferably, any curves are stay stitched soon after cutting. Wrapping cab be caused even just if the – fabric is moved a couple of times.
CLIPPING CORNERS AND CURVES
One of the simplest techniques that can make huge of a difference! Seams are bulky on projects with curves and corners. Upon turning the item right side out, it gets difficult to lay it flat. However, if the corner is clipped diagonally, getting it close to the seam (but not too close!), a nice, crisp corner is made when it’s turned right side out. The same principle applied curves is no different. Some of the bulk has to be removed for a flat seam. Notch the mountain curves; and clip the valley curves.
Quite often, beginner might think, once a seam is sewn, the work is done. Not really! It’s always important to finish seams to prevent raveling and make the inside work look just as nice as the outside. Many a times with a pair of pinking shears, seam can be simply pinked. However, the best seam finish really depends on your fabric and garment. There are great tutorials on how to sew a self-bound seam, how to sew a French seam, and how to sew a flat-fell seam.
HEMS Most likely properly finishing your seams, a well-executed hem can give your garment a much professional finish. The right hem for your garment would largely depend some on the type of fabric and the style of garment. It’s advisable to familiarize yourself with the different types of hems so you pick the best one for the garment.
