Easily add 1/4" seam allowance to curved seams

The "In the Pantry" pattern set includes one pattern with some gentle curved seams. A great beginners pattern if you've not sewn curved seams before.

To help you along the way, I've created a short video to guide you when cutting your 1/4" seam allowance around curved seams. This method is much easier and faster than using a seam guide to mark around the pattern piece, then cutting from dot to dot around the pattern.

Go ahead and try it, it really is as easy as it seems!


  1. that was awesomely easy and genius!

  2. This is just what I needed for one of Jen Kingwell's patterns- thank you!

    1. It's a great technique isn't it? Really simple too

  3. It is a very handy technique for curves
