there is a certain direction that seams should be stitched. This is
not found on any pattern direction page that I have ever looked at, but
the expert seamstresses will tell you this is the correct way to sew
seams. Occasionally some commercial patterns will have an arrow pointing
the direction the way a seam should be sewn. Helpful hints are Listed
Skirts - should be sewn from the HEMLINE to the waistline or
Bodice (top part of dress,
top, or jacket)- should be sewn from the UNDERARM to the waist.
Shoulder - should be
sewn from NECK edge to the shoulder.
Pants or Shorts -
should be sewn from the hem to the crotch or waistline.
