Sew Better with Staystitching Fundamentals

Staystitching reinforces curved edges, like those on the front panel of a princess-seam garment. The seam allowances may need to be clipped so they can be stitched smoothly to the corresponding side-front panels.
It's best to staystitch right after you remove the pattern from the fabric. You definitely need to do it before sewing any seams. It's essential to staystitch curved and angled edges, and if you're sewing with a very loosely woven fabric, it might be a good idea to carefully staystitch all of the edges to be seamed. This may not be the most exciting part of making a garment, but it's details like this that take your projects to another level.
