You know when a sewing pattern tells you, ‘Trim seam allowance.’ Seriously – do it. It’s an easy instruction to ignore, but I’m always shocked at how much excess fabric is removed from a make. This is bulk that could seriously interfere with how a waistband hugs or pocket lies flat.
A wise woman told me that sewing is all about the stuff you can’t see. I totally agree with her. Scissors to the ready, peeps!
Now, tell me. Get it off your chest. Is there a sewing instruction that you always ignore? I’ll go first. Suggested placement of pattern pieces on fabric for cutting out? Yeah, that one can take a running jump.
