Cutting Tools: Rotary Cutters, Pinking Shears and Weighted Scissors
For a breath of fresh air, I decided to start construction of another dress, Simplicity 2580, instead of finishing my black, white and turquoise go around of strapless Vogue 8184.
I measured the pattern, scaled my proper size on pattern paper, cut it out and then cut on the fabric. Volleying between my various cutting tools, I suddenly was in strong appreciation of how each tool made constructing garments easier. So, to help others, I decided to do a post regarding my selection.
I hope this helps someone else in their shearing journey. Now, time to put another cut of Hazelnut coffee in my coffee maker, grab a butter croissant and get back to playing with fabric.
