3147Re: Constructing a Cut Out
- Oct 2, 2007What Cat said about the lining, but make it a tiny bit smaller than
the outside fabric. If there are side seams, make the lining seam
allowance about 1/8" bigger than the outside, maybe only about
1/16". You want it just enough smaller to put some tension on the
edges so they don't pooch out.
