Aldrich Method Already includes Seam Allowance


#1

Hi,

I’m following the method on p.122 of Metric Pattern Cutting for Men.

The method she uses already includes 1cm seam allowance in the pattern design.

But it seems I can’t move on to layout until details are added. Is there a way to add the seam allowance towards the inside of the pattern? Itried -1cm but I can’t go less than 0.

What is the proper way?

PS this is my first attempt at design and Valentina makes it simple enough. Great tool

Hi,

Turn off a seam allowance and use a detail without it. As you said “The method she uses already includes 1cm seam allowance in the pattern design”. In this case you don’t need a seam allowance.
