Greetings! I’m sewing a Burda skirt that does not include a seam allowance. I have two questions: 1) do I include the allowance around the whole pattern piece, including the waist (and facing)? Or just to the side seams (and hem)? And 2) is it better to add the allowances to the pattern itself or to just chalk them to the fabric?
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
