Stay stitching is our friend. I used to hate it when I was sewing as a child, I saw it as a useless step, now I never do a curve without it.  And for the in experienced sewer/seamstress - Stay stitching is a single line of stitching, through one layer of fabric, to stabilize the fabric, preventing it from becoming stretched or distorted. Stay stitching is usually called for on the edge of a piece of fabric that has a bias cut to it which would allow the fabric to easily become distorted.


And curves can easily become distorted, especially with light weight fabrics.

Seem like a good idea.  I think I would do the stay stitching and clipping the inverted edge also for a better finish
