Now, cut the fabric! Make sure you put the pattern on the fold and that the direction of the ribbing/greatest stretch are correct.
I added the seam allowance in this step, since I will use the pattern both for fabrics that fray and fabrics that don’t fray. This fabric frays, so I wanted to finish the edges with an overlocked seam on my serger/overlock machine and added seam allowance all around the shrug.
