Learning to sew
I am teaching myself the art, as there aren't many people in my world that sew. It seems to be a dying art.
I have just bought all the fabric and notations I need for this project.
When I was ironing the fabrics/linings, I found that the width of my lining isn't what was stated on the bolt and that the lining is wider (selvage to selvage) than my fabric and also it's wider then my pattern calls for.
How do I fix this?
Thanks very much for any input.
