Separate dipMl torners at right angles I?. I have a dress pattern with a (square inset piece on (he lop front. I have heen afraid lo iry nrpking it because it looks hard to] do. How do I get the corner square? Can vou give me some hjits? JA. The first and most im- [xjrlanl hint I can give you is to choose your fabric carefully. If yju choose a fabric with a certain amount of ease it will make a square corner much better. Also, because you'll be clipping into the corner right next to the stitching to make it fi(, be sure lo choose a fabric Ihjit doesn'l fray badly. ] The best fabric for a pattern of th s type is a doubleknif because has ease and doesn't fray. Fj brics also a good choice. to avoid are satin. pojyester woven fabrics, and polyester and cotton fabrics that haVe a permanent press finish on them. These fabrics have no ea^e and generally fray badly. Jie sure to cut out your dress accurately, especially in Ihe anas of the square inset piece and Ihe dress piece it tits into. !'( tting these two pieces lo, [ether will probably be one of thf first things you do because it'fe much easier while the dress isjlat. The first step is to stay- sWch around the square corners of he inset piece and around the ners of the dress piece. i Figure I) Using twenty stitches per inch start an inch or two from the corner, stitch right lo the corner, pivot and stitch an inch or two in the other direction. To make sure this stitching is right on Ihe seamline i probably l « inch) you may want lo mark Ihe corner where you'll pivot wilh chalk or crayon before you slilch. Next, you «ill need to clip into the corners of Ihe dress piece. This clipping should be done right to the stitching bul not through it. (Figure 2) Don't be afraid to clip right up to the stitching because it's necessary for the corner to fit right. Now wilh right sides logether. pin Ihe dress piece 'to the insel piece. When youget lo the corner you'll have lo pull apart the dress piece where you clipped it so that one side of the dress corner lays at a right angle to the other side and il fits around Ihe square corner of the insel piece. iFigure 3) To make sure that the seamlines match in Ihe corner area, slick pins through the stay-stitching on the dress lo sec that it matches up with Ihe slay- slitching on the inset piece. Also slick a pin Ihrough the clipped corner at Ihe point to make sure il matches Ihe corner point of the stitching on the insel piece. You must have it pinned correctly to sew it correctly and accurate sewing is extremely important in the corner area. Slildi wilh the dress piece on lop using 20 stilchos per inch in the corner area for reinforcement. When slilching Ihe corner be sure lo go right lo (he corner of your slay-stitching, lefl your presserfool, pivot Ihe dress wilh the needle still in the fabric, and (hen sew down (he other side of Ihe corner. It's a lilllo hard because lliere is extra fabric from the dress piece bunched up in the corner. Be sure to hold this out of the way while you slileh inlo the corner, pivol and continue stitching. If you have done this accurately, you should have sharp square corners on Ihe fronl of your dress. To gel the scams to lie flal you'll need lo clip out a litlle square piece at (he corner of Iheinset piece. The seams are usually both pressed towards the inset piece bul check your pattern lo see if il calls for this. Sometimes it will call for the seams to be topstilched lo the inset piece. This helps lo keep Ihe scams flal and makes the corner area a bit stronger. Do you have a sewing question or a filling problem? Send them lo "Creative .Sewing" C-0 Idaho Free Press. Box 88, N'ampa.
