Easing

Easing Tips
EASING
Easing creates shaping subtlety.
For example, you will end it at the top of a sleeve.
The sewing line of the sleeve pattern is generally a bit longer that the
sewing line of an armhole. This is to accommodate the curve of the
top of your arm.
Some sewing pattern instructions indicate "Ease" with a broken line on the
smaller sewing line, whilst the longer sewing line is indicated by a wiggly line.
There should be a notch where the ease begins and ends.
If you are creating bust shaping without sewing a dart,
the notches will indicate between which 2 points a longer
length can be stretched into a shorter length.
