Featured in the PR book!
I am fairly new to sewing and want to make a dress with princess seams. Can anyone give me tips? I tried once and it was a disaster!

Try stay stitching where the curves are,then clip almost to stitching then pin. Should go right together.

Hi LAS, you've found a great site with lots of sewing help and info. Welcome! I do encourage you to post your question on the message boards. We have an 'expert' corner where you can get help, and there are lots of people besides our expert who will be glad to help. I suggest this because I think you'll get a lot more help on the message boards than here. Good luck!

Run a silk basting thread along both seam stitching lines. Or mark the stitching line with chalk, any way you want to do this! From the right side you will be folding in one of the seam allowances and matching the stitching line, pin in place. Use a ham to help bring the stitching lines together over the curve. Tunnel baste this with silk thread. Take to the sewing machine and sew over the stitching line. Remove the silk basting thread and press seam clipping only where necessary to press the seam open. You will have a beautiful princess seam.
