*Cut-by-suggestion means there are no tissue sewing pattern pieces to lay down on a piece of fabric and cut out. Instead, instructions are given so that no matter how large or small you need your item to be, all you have to do is determine the size you want your finished item to be, then plug those numbers into the instructions. For instance, why should a pattern company include a tissue pattern for a curtain that will be 100" x 60"? That would be a huge, unweildy piece of tissue that will be difficult for your to maneuver. It's easier just to measure the fabric and follow the instructions provided. The same instructions would apply whether the curtain will be 100" x 60" or 80" x 40". Just plug in your numbers, and follow the instructions. Cut-by-suggestion instructions are usually provided when the pattern piece would be extra large and/or with straight lines.This is usually done by sewing companies when the pattern piece would be extra large with straight lines.

Don't let cut-by-suggestion curtain sewing patterns throw you. It's easier to manage a tape measure than it is to wrestle that big a piece of tissue, pin it down, and cut it out.
