But let’s be real: matching stripes can be a headache. That is, unless you have these no-hassle tips from instructor Vanessa Vargas Wilson.
- It starts with cutting. The great thing about this striped fabric is you can still see the pattern on the wrong side. So fold it over on itself, line up the stripes and cut using her trusty two-ruler trick for straight lines. (All the deets are in your tutorial video!) Then just trim the fold and you’ve got yourself two pieces of identical fabric.
- Borrow a trick from quilting and glue baste the lines. Seriously — it’ll give you seamless stripes every time!
