I hate transferring pattern marks, especially the ones that mark where to sew when its really just a standard seam allowance. I skip it, and I use this method to make sure my seam allowances stay true. Let’s face it, those little lines on the machine are faint and not nearly long enough. I remedy this with a bit of ribbon.
I was using a 5/8 inch seam today. Other ways I’ve done it include a sewn band of elastic or even a hair elastic. I didn’t want to waste elastic and the cats steal all the ones for hair, so I decided to pretty up my Singer Curvy with the ribbon. Hope this helps.
