This is a perennial….. I have read many times that, when sewing straight seams (eg on A line skirt) it is best to sew from the wider end to the narrower. Can someone please tell me the technical reason for this?
I am sewing Bemsilk lining (for a skirt) at the moment and started at the narrow end. Needed to taut stitch-with an inbuilt dual feed!!!! Then I remembered about the ‘rule’ and it really made a difference.
So… can someone tell my why it is so?
