Seven Steps to Sewing Smooth Princess Seams

Seven Steps to Sewing Smooth Princess Seams

Hi Friends!

One of the very first garments I ever made was a princess seamed dress for my high school graduation. Everything came together relatively well, except for the princess seams. 

They were pretty much a sewing catastrophe. 

In all my years of sewing since have yet to figure out what exactly I did wrong, but somehow, somewhere in the sewing process, I sewed the seam with a giant bubble in it. It looked very anatomically correct. Very reminiscent of the bullet bras from the 50's where everything was pointy and not so smooth. Luckily for me, I was able to fix the seam before graduation, but it was still one of my scariest sewing moments today. 

  In the end, I was able to selvedge the seams, hurray!

I'm happy to report that I've gotten a LOT better at sewing princess seams since then, and I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to share all the things I've learned over at the Itch to Stitch blog!
