Sewing around curves

Peter pan collar

There is nothing more frustrating than when you have sewn up something and the curves are not so curvy. It is probably because the seam allowances haven't been snipped enough.

To get the best out of your curves the trick is to snip every 10mm or 1cm in your seam allowance so that it allows the seam to curve around as well. Once you have done this, then make sure that you press it well on the correct side.
