Sewing Tip: When cutting your sewing patterns, use short cutting strokes along curved edges. Not only will this provide added control and stability, the garment pieces will result in a smoother cut.
Cutting along narrow and abruptly curved edges will take some practice to master. Shorter cutting strokes can often result in a more jagged cut edge. For that reason, it is important to take your time in the cutting process, being careful to start each cutting stroke exactly where you left the last one. For optimal precision, it is equally important to keep the pinned sewing pattern as flat as possible in the cutting process- the goal is to achieve a smooth fabric edge that is identical to its corresponding pattern edge.
