Or, “a breakthrough, I am doomed.”
After reading through several suggestions online (you’ll be shocked at how many pins you can fit in a square inch of fabric), I found a method that actually works. It has to do with matching up the fabrics on the seam line (not the cut line) and it involved no pins at all.
As you can see, the two pieces fit together with little pucker.
Can you spot the problem?
I am doomed. I’ve pulled so many stitches out of this tiny bit of fabric that there are hardly any threads left to sew.
