Our patterns are ready and it’s time to cut! On Day 4 of the L 890 Airy Top & Comfy Dress Garment Sew Along, I’ll be walking you through my best practices for cutting all three garments in this series. We’ll start with fabric prep, move into cutting your woven Airy Top followed by the Knit Airy top. Lastly, we’ll cut out our Comfy Dress and then all of our prep is over and the sewing can begin!
In the video, we discuss the cutting layouts for each pattern and fabric, but I’m including them here as well for easy reference. You’ll notice that the pattern layout is the same for the Airy Top whether you’re using 45 or 54-inch wide fabric, while with the Comfy Dress the layout does depend on the width of the fabric.
Woven Airy Top Layout – 45 – 54″ Wide Fabric Layout
Knit Airy Top Layout – 45 – 54″ Wide Fabric Layout
Comfy Dress Layout – 45″ Wide Fabric Layout
Comfy Dress Layout – 54″ Wide Fabric Layout
So press your fabric, get out your shears, and let’s tackle cutting out our garments! After this we’re going to start the fun part – sewing! So much of sewing is prep work, but while it may seem like a pain, it’s what sets us up for an enjoyable sewing experience and a great fitting garment!
