2 Curved Seams

3 5.03 Reducing Bulk Regular seam allowance is sometimes too bulky, especially in enclosed areas such as necklines, collars, & cuffs. Curved seams and corners also will be bulky.

4 Trimming Cutting off part of the seam allowance. Leave 1/8 to ¼” seam allowance. Used in curves areas, such as underarm or center back seam of pants.

5 Grading Trim each seam allowance to a different width. Seam allowance closest to the outside of garment should be the widest. Trim both seam allowances in half & then trim one in half again.

6 Clipping Done on inward curves to allow seam allowance to spread Making straight cuts into the seam allowance. Clip after seam is trimmed or graded. Clip every ¼” to ½”

7 Notching Use for outward curves to remove excess seam allowance, ie. Curved collars. Cut V-shaped sections from the seam allowance.

8 Trimming corners Trim before turning. Trim a right-angle corner by cutting diagonally across the seam allowance.

9 For corners with sharp point, cut diagonally across the seam allowance Cut away the side of the corner to remove extra fabric.
