How to True Seam Lines

 

This week we’re continuing on the theme of "details count". Last week we talked about button placement rules that will help you get the perfect button placement on every garment you make. In today’s video I’m going to show you how to check and true your seam lines.

If there is one thing I’m certain of, it’s that many of you aren’t checking your patterns after you’ve made your fitting alterations. This can be problematic for you when you discover at the sewing stage that your pieces aren’t sewing together easily. So let me show you how you can avoid the frustration of having this happen to you.

Watch the video for all the details.

So tell me do you walk your seam lines and correct your notch positions after you’ve made your pattern alterations? If you learned your lesson the hard way I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. I hope you’ll share so that others won’t make the same mistake.

Next time we’re going to talk about seam line ease. If you’re not sure what I mean by that I hope you’ll tune in next week to find out.

All My Best,
