Easy Sewing Tutorials - Sewing Allowances

Posted by on

In this sewing tutorial, you will learn how to sew with allowances.

A sewing allowance is the extra you add around your pattern to enable you sew different pieces of fabric together e.g. the front and the back or a bodice to a skirt.

After cutting out your fabric pieces and before sewing, do the following:

1. Align the edges of the different pieces of fabrics together;

2. Pin the edges together with your dressmaker pins;

3. Use your seam guide (if you have one) or follow the calibration of your machine to ensure an even sewn allowance.
