Cutting is the method of piecing the fabric into suitable sizes, so that it can be sewn together to form a full and neat garment.

Points to Consider

·               Before actually start cutting into the fabric, make sure all the pattern pieces are laid out correctly and taken into account that some pieces may need to be cut out twice, or even four times (common with pockets and waistbands with interfacing).

·               Extra fabric will need to be purchased when using prints that have a directional pattern, a print that needs to be matched (like with stripes and plaids), and fabric with a directional nap (like with velvet and corduroy). Pay close attention out pattern pieces on fabrics that have a direction.

·               Make sure to use pins and scissors that are sharp. Dull pins can be damaging on more delicate fabrics, and sharp scissors make a big difference in the accuracy of cutting. Seams along corners and hemlines are cut in straight lines.

·               Use rotary cutter and pattern weights. While cutting around pins. Not only is this method much faster, but it significantly reduces fraying while cutting.
