I’m very new to sewing and have what is probably a really stupid question.
I have a McCall’s pattern (M5110). Regarding the seam allowance which is 5/8″, does this mean that after I cut out my size from the pattern that on the fabric I add another 5/8″ to the edges and then cut? Or does it mean that I cut out my size and then measure in 5/8″ and that’s where the seam allowance is?
I’d appreciate any help in regards to this – I’ve used the search feature, but apparently this is common knowledge to all but me.
