10 Better Sewing Habits
|Leave Your Marks|
Sewers often remove pattern pieces from cut fabric before transferring the pattern markings, intending to transfer the markings at a later time. This just makes the task more difficult when you return to the project; garment pieces may shift and warp, and aligning edges and markings with their proper positions can be nearly impossible.
It is essential to mark all garment pieces before removing them from the cutting table and unpinning the patterns. Get it out of the way so you don't have to fuss with it later. -Linda Lee
