Is this a gusset?
I am making a toddler's dress and I have to make a slash on the left hand side of the front skirt (stitching a "V" first and pivoting before slashing for reinforcement). Then the pattern says to spread the slashed edges apart so that they form a straight line. Not sure if I can get it straight where the "V" comes to a point, even though I did pivot. Just haven't done one of these in all my years of sewing. I am afraid that I will end up stitching over a fold where the "V" comes to a point. Thanks.
