Featured in the PR book!
I am working on a McCall's pattern - 4079- for a 3 hour blouse/shirt and included in the pattern was a great tip. If you snipmark all notches circles, squares, center fronts, pleat lines, fold lines, facing lines and hemlines it sure does make everything work much faster. In some cases you don't have to mark certain things. I'm working on the front of the blouse and where you would fold the facing in, if you use the snip marks at top and bottom the rest falls in place. It works great.

Just thought you might want to know.

Great tip. I usually do snips at the notches, but I hadn't thought of it for other markings. I'll give it a try! -Ann
