I got this tip from the book "fit for real people"
To sew opposite curves without puckers, you should first staystich the "inside" curve 1mm from teh seamline, then you clip the seam allowance. This will allow you to "straighten" the curve adn change its shape so it matches the other curve's shape. Then you can easily pin and sew together without any puckering
