1. Pin facing to interfacing. I had the facing on the fold pinned to the interfacing on the fold.
2. Cut out interfacing using the facing as a template.
3. Once the piece is cut out, do not unpin. Flip the whole piece over and start removing the SAs from the interfacing only. Be careful not to clip the underlying fabric. Duckbill applique scissors would be great here, but I do not own any. You can see I already trimmed the SA from the bottom and I'm working on the top.
4. And here is the interfacing unpinned, all cut out. This way I more accurate and did not have to deal with the flimsy tissue paper again.
If you find this helpful let me know or even link to it.
And next up, I have two more followers.
Thanks to Marian of * k1, 1 dc, yo. We were volunteers together at the UCD Craft Center many years ago. Check out the outfits she puts together on her blog. I envy her Anthropology wardrobe.
Thanks to Pammie of Pammie and the P's for becoming the newest follower! She just bought an old serger (as old as mine!) and made a funky Macaroon dress.
Also readers, do you think I can make anything else from this stripped knit? I have a lot of waste because I wanted the black band around my waist. What do you think? Any use for it?
