Let's face it. Sometimes the reason that we get stuck in sewing is the terminology used in patterns. Then, once we look it up, we ofttimes are more confused than before. Sometimes you just need a bit more detailed description in perhaps simpler terms. Today on Simple Sewing Sat...Sundays (ah, the joyful distractions of summer!) we will seek to remedy those pesky vague Sewist Terms that can trick us up....
- And while we're on the subject of armholes and necklines, always remember this: If a curve goes outward, you cut out little v's randomly, to give some ease. If a curve goes inwardly, make little clips for the same ease. Outward: V's; Inward: clips.
Well, that is about all my none technical, somewhat aloof sewing mind can handle for today. Do you have other vague sewing terms that befuddle you and are afraid to ask others lest they point and giggle at you? Have no fear in approaching the most lackadaisical sewist there is! I probably don't even know the answer, but at my age, not much embarrasses me anymore, so I will ask some wizened supreme sewist poobah for you!
