I'm making the second (wearable) muslin of a shirt with a Peter Pan collar, and notching the curves on this collar was time consuming. The collar was also a challenge to sew neatly, so I was being very careful during clipping because I didn't want to mess anything up!
For the first muslin, I cut one collar piece and trimmed off the 5/8" allowance before sewing it on to the shirt body. That gave me a pretty good idea of how it looked, and allowed me to skip sewing the entire collar.
While patiently clipping away, I remembered a tip for using pinking shears to notch curves. But the pinking shears I had were dull, dull, dull and no longer cut fabric.
Gingher's Pinking Shears have been on my wish list for some time, so yesterday it was time to get them!
They are very heavy and will cut through multiple layers of fabric at once. I can't wait to try them out for notching curves.
