New to sewing with lots of questions
Hi all, I started sewing back in may as a hobby due to being out of work long term for medical. I love this site and all the information it has, but I still have silly questions. Everything started with quilting which I was not so good at and somehow moved to clothing based off patterns which I really enjoy anyway here’s my questions:
1. Are you supposed to cut patterns to the cut line when cutting them out, or do you do the precise cuts when cutting the fabric?
2. no matter what I do, I have issues with the pattern “fluffing” when I pin it. I’ve tried weights, pinning corners first, ect with no luck. ( I do iron the pattern piece first)
3. cutting is the biggest issue for me. The edges wind up choppy or uneven. I use fiscers spring handle flat scissors ( the bottom when cutting is flat) and do a full cut but still issues
4. finally any advice you wish you had when you first started?
