Always make sure you stabilize the inner curve!!!! Use the fusible stay tape (straight grain is perfect, but if you have a bias one it is ok too. The straight grain is better as will not stretch at all). Lay the stay tape over the seam line and fuse with a hot iron.

    I have never heard of fusible stay tape. What is it? Do you lay it on top of the seamline, or next to it? If its right on top, how do you see the seamline underneath? Thanks!

      it is a fusible interfacing tape with a stitching along the centre- you place the stitching directly over the seam
