Hi all, I’ve posted some pictures in my “projects” folder, via the above link to try and show the problem I always seem to have.
Basically I match the top corners of each piece accurately and the bottom edges. I staystitch the straighter edge and cut little nicks in it where it needs to fit over the curved edge of the other piece, sew them together and then cut nicks in the curved piece too before ironing the seams open but the top edge never works correctly for me. It should have a nice smooth curve in the underarm area, but where the seams join there is always a giant ‘step’ as shown in the first 3 pictures (1 shows what it looks like from the right side with the seams both folded towards the centre, 2 shows when seams ironed open, 3 = from the wrong side to show that the top corners meet together and 4-5 show how I can only get it to work if I shift one of the pieces higher before sewing so that the corners don’t meet exactly). What on earth am I doing wrong? I’ve watched so many ‘how to’ videos but I must be missing something!
One did mention about matching the ‘bust markings’ too before sewing but the pattern pieces I’ve used have never had bust markings and the ‘how to’ didn’t say where exactly you mark them if I wanted to :-( It’s getting me sooo frustrated!
