    Not sure which pattern it is you’ve downloaded but if it’s a Burda one, they never include seam allowances from what i’ve seen. The sizes usually work from 34 to 42 or 36 to 44 if it’s standard siz…

    I think you can take it to a print shop to get printed instead. I’d just buy the magazine if it’s available near you. You get loads of patterns in each one and have to trace each one out yourself b…

    You can do a lettuce edging using a narrow zigzag stitch and slightly stretching the fabric as you sew from what I remember. i’m sure I did it that way before i had a serger.

    Thanks to you all. I’m going to have a practice on scrap fabric and try out all your suggestions to see which works best for me. I’m determined to work out how it’s done!!

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic Help! I need a no-damage clip to take in dress!
