How important to cut on the grainline?
The last time I posted a question I received so much help and info. I thought I’d ask you ladies (& guys) my new question. I made McCall pattern M5110 – I followed the directions exactly and the skirt turned out so well that I decided to make another one in a yellow cotton/poly blend fabric. (same fabric as last time)
It says to cut the yoke on the grainline. However, if I were to cut perpendicular to the grainline I would have enough fabric to make a matching sleeveless blouse. So how important is it to cut on the grainline?
The fabric does have a bit more “give” to it on the other direction (not sure of the proper name), but not too much more. It wouldn’t be a bias cut. And the fabric isn’t heavy, it’s more light and thin I’d say. The skirt doesn’t have a lining but the yoke is lined with the same fabric.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks 😀
