Hello all! I’m new here, and have been so glad to read and learn from the posts on this forum… I’ve nearly finished my first draft of some dog bandanas! I’ve drafted it with seam allowance included, just transferring measurements from a previous draft on paper. I didn’t think this would be an issue, but I’m now at the point where I’m adding some marks to show where to pivot at the corner while sewing… I think that drafting without the seam allowance may have been a mistake?
Instead of the bandana being a straight triangle, I’ve drafted the tie-ends in kind of a curved leaf shape, and I’m having trouble figuring out how to add a passmark exactly where I need it. Of course I can easily measure in 1cm to where my seam allowance would be along the straight edge before the leaf shape begins, but I don’t know how to get it in the correct place 1cm inside the curved part.
Is there a way to inset the SA here at the draw stage? Or maybe something else I’m missing?
(EDIT: I have thankfully found a workaround in with the inset function in Inkscape, but would still like to know if this is possible here!)
