Sewing curves is a challenge and I finally figured how to win this one.
Reduce your stitch length and you will find you have far more control and a much smoother seamline when you do this.

I've always dreaded and struggled with this and am thrilled to finally have figured how to handle it. Just remember to reset the stitch length to normal after you're done.

Reducing your stitch length is also used when starting a seam and ending it if you would rather not backstitch or are sewing a dart.

Ladybegood, I believe I use 2.0 but as always do some test-outs and find what feels and looks right to you and your machine.

By how much would you reduce it? Say, for example, you start at a 2.5...?
