We all see triangles, circles and squares on our pattern pieces. What’s the difference? How important are they? Learn your way around these printed matchpoints and discover how they’ll help streamline your sewing. Then …. learn about the matchpoints you don’t see, which are just as critical but not marked on the pattern pieces. These are the matchpoints that save you frustration – irritation with seams that don’t match up, collars that don’t fit the neckline, excess fabric in mysterious places and so on. For example: trimming a scant ¼” from the pattern’s cutting line to “make things match up” can result in a ‘mis-fit’ of as much as ¾” on a neckline, and a collar that just doesn’t fit when you try to apply it. Cynthia’s simple, straightforward system for locating and marking these critical points of intersection will save you time and frustration, and deliver a smooth sewing experience with an excellent result -- every time, no matter what garment you’re making.
