Hairline Seam – Possible error in issue June/July 2005
Hi! I have been trying to wrap my brain around the directions for curved seams on page 63.
The left side summary says, “When sewn, the hairline seam has a tendency to roll in the direction of the fabric layer that was on the bottom during sewing.”
Then in the directions to get the seam allowances to roll toward the sleeve it says, “With the sleeve side UP and garment side DOWN, etc.”
These statements seem contradictory to me. After several tests, I came to the conclusion that the instructions might be wrong. I searched for a possible Threads Magazine correction, to know avail.
Help! Someone please tell me I am not crazy!
