Because these Y- Seams are so big and I was working with a number of fabrics cut on the bias (and liable to stretch) I did 3 extra things that I would recommend. My tips are:
- Trace the shape onto freezer paper and iron onto the back of your fabric, then cut your shape and leave the freezer paper on when you sew.
- When you cut the shape add a good extra cm on the outside edge (the ones you are not sewing now). You can trim it up later.
- Use spray starch on the your triangle of triangles to make it stiffer and less likely to stretch.
I was pretty chuffed with the result. It just needs to be squared up.
