For those of you who participating in the Sew Along with NikkiShell, especially the first one for the Susan Blouse, you might find this How To a bit too late. But after a special request from a member, I decided now is as good a time as any to share the trick for sewing sharp corners and angles.

This is a trick I learned the same time as the Sewing Curves Trick, and I must say, it has saved me from some intense breakdowns. It seems almost impossible to make an inset piece with pointed edges fit into a larger concave piece, but with a handy little clip at the right place and time, you’ll be able to tackle this and many other sticky sewing situations! So, without further ado, the Sewing Corners How To! Get out all the patterns with v-necks, square yokes, and boxy darts- you’ve got everything you need to sew them now.

    That is how measurement shall be done. This kind of job is not that easy at all. – Gary McClure
