Quick Answer: How do you cut notches in sewing patterns?

Do you cut out the triangles on a sewing pattern?

What do dots mean on sewing patterns?

Dots are made in various sizes by the pattern companies. These must be marked onto your fabric. They indicate starting and stopping points for stitching, as well as points to match up markings for things like darts.

When cutting the materials this is how do you notches should be cut from seam allowance?

Notches are always cut into the edge of the fabric, never the middle of a piece, and they may not be deeper than the seam allowance. On some pieces, double notches – two notches next to each other – are also used to make lining the piece up easier. Double notches are matched with other double notches.

When you cut out your pattern you should cut out which line the solid line or the dotted line?

If a pattern comes in one size only, usually the cutting line is a solid line and the seam lines (where you would sew on the fabric) are dotted or dashed.
