In today's post I share with you 3 places to alter your pattern that we use the most often in my private lessons to solve fit issues before you cut cut the cloth. They are quick, and worth the extra effort.
Make Relief Cuts Cutting a contoured profile is easier if you first cut in to the line along the curves and at the transition points. Then, when you saw the profile, the waste falls away whenever you reach one of these relief cuts. This frees the blade to continue and effectively reduces each contour to a series of short, manageable cuts.
