|Warm Up for Better Performance
You would never run a road race without first stretching and warming up your muscles, nor would you sign an important document before scribbling the pen on a scrap of paper. The same goes for sewing. You need to loosen up physically to get the best results, especially with hand sewing.
If you are going to hand-sew, loosen up your fingers by practicing the stitches on a sample, or in a place on the garment where they won't show. Sample all the stitches you plan to use before sewing them on the garment. Practice makes perfect! It will eliminate the fear of mistakes, you'll hone your technique, and you'll get better results. -Anna Mazur
