|Friday Fun Fact!
Are you grading your seam allowances?
Often patterns will tell you to "trim seam," but what does that mean?
If your seam will be enclosed, like a facing edge, collar, or cuff, you should grade - simply put, trim in stair-steps, so that each layer is a little shorter than the next.
It might feel a little tedious, but it's SO important. Grading reduces bulk and makes the seam allowance ridge less abrupt. It's sometimes called layering seams.
Generally, your longest layer should be the fashion fabric or outer fabric, and the shortest should be the facing or lining. Grade to as many levels as needed!
