Here’s a tip for sewing two curved pieces together. First, clip the edges of the concave piece. While sewing them together, pull the edge of the concave piece until it’s even with the convex piece, using the large tweezers that come with your serger.

    Kreativelady again.

    ps. I have (3) pattern pieces for this peasant blouse. I have constructed the sleeves, and about to attach the "extra" curve from the sleeve.I have tried to fit it in the dress, but can't seem to understand the directions to add this piece... I attached the 2 pices in the arm area.

    The pattern shows a seam on neck for eleastic, plus elastic is also added to the puff sleeve. This does not look right to me. Again I appreciate this help. kreativelady.
