  • Pin your selvedges together matching stripes. This will ensure that your stripes will match all the way across the fabric and on both sides.
  • Place your pattern pieces on the fabric matching seam lines along the same stripe. Pin in place.
  • Do not cut pieces on the fold. Instead, trace your pattern piece and flip it and trace the other side. Again make sure your seams are along the same stripe.

Don't let sewing with stripes intimidate you! It's not as hard as it looks and with these simple tips you will look like a pro.
