Sewing Curves and Corners

Sewing Curves and Corners

Let's talk about - Sewing Curves and Corners! Both of these seamlines are a staple in most garment construction. You might find curved seamlines in a princess seam, a sweetheart neckline, or standard armscye. They add a beautiful element of design detail as well as shape and structure when they are used. The most common corner is likely a collar, but you can also find this seamline on waistbands, bindings, and center back openings. A well-sewn corner can make or break an outfit! Not only do you need to sew it precisely, generally there are two that meet side by side, so mirroring an exact replica is key!

This course features a sew along of the Liberty Jane Culotte Jumpsuit pattern for 18" dolls to demonstrate these techniques in action.
