I’m new to this website, but I’d really like to mention something about ironing as you sew.
One of the most important things you can do to make your garment look professional, not homemade, is to iron as you go.. Press seams, iron darts, iron necklines, iron everything you have added facing to and turned. I see photos here of garments that are beautiful, but could be stunning if the seams and facings were pressed! When you have a curve, snip the seam allowance after sewing, turn, and iron it!
I’m so impressed by the work shown by new seamtresses here!
Happy sewing everyone!
