I had my eyes on this beautiful skirt from Burda Magazine 9/2010. Beautifully structured, the curved seams make the silhouette just perfect and fantastically slim.

Today I decided to share my tips on how to sew a curved seam without stretching the fabrics for a beautiful result. I learned it from Sandra Betzina a while ago.

    Thankyou for your tips! I’m embarking on a christmas project for my kids and two of them are major curves. It will make the whole thing a lot easier!

    Are those separate pieces then you sew them together?

      yes, the pattern of the front of the skirt consists of 4 separate pieces, and this technique is vital to have the finished garment with no stretching. It is time consuming, but actually worth every minute- believe it or not- it was my first go, I just took pictures along the way)))
