I am going to cut fabric for a Sure-Fit Designs Dress Kit Dress Sheath. What was that you were telling me about adding 5/8” to the Center Front for testing and fitting purposes?
You need to allow 5/8" on BOTH edges of CF - (CF can no longer be on the fold of the fabric) - you've got to get into it somehow.
See the attached photo. This woman has added a 5/8" seam to the CF - then she simply stitched on this 5/8" line - so that she new exactly where the 5/8" line is. Then when you put the dress on, you simply overlap the 5/8" stitching line when it's on your body. Notice that she has CF pinned closed on this stitching line.
If this doesn't clarify, we can do a quick Skype - I'll show you my pink bodice
