Duane MacLeod says, “I baste almost everything before going to the machine. Many sewists see it as a tedious step. It may take more time, but it provides more control than pinning. As a result, my sewing is more precise, and I rarely have to rip things apart and start over.”
Duane has been making his own clothes on the coast of Maine for 12 years. Follow him at MainelyMenswear.com and on Instagram.
