I'm confused - please explain:In the example of the skirt with the dart that had been basted in place - I can see that you would sew from the bottom of the skirt to the top if you were following the rule for directional sewing with the grain. However - then you said that one should sew from the widest to the narrowest - which - if you stitched your dart that way, would not be possible as you would be stitching against the grain. Would it not have been preferable to make sure you cut out the skirt piece so that the grain ran from top to bottom, so you could also stitch your dart that way?
I love how Colleen thinks of the simplest things to teach! This is SO important - new sewers should be 'eating your stuff up'!
This is very good too know. Thank you, Colleen.
