Blogtoberfest Day 5: Did you know?

For those who trace out patterns that need the seam allowances added on, like those from my favourite magazine Ottobre, did you know that your index finger is the perfect width for a seam allowance? I just trace the pattern off then lay my finger next to the traced line and draw along the edge of my finger to get nice even seam allowances all around.

Sorry for the short post - we had a family day today with it being a public holiday here and therefore no craftiness to show, so I thought I'd share my favourite dressmaking tip.
