What's your most dreaded sewing step?
Replies are closed for this discussion.
I hate cutting out. It is the one step I procrastinate over more than anything else. Once cut out, I am very happy to just plug away until the dress is complete, but I can be paralysed with fear over the cutting out. What if I ruin my good fabric? What if the dress does not match the idea I have in my mind of the finished product?
Crazy I know....
I thought about this question.And I think the most dreaded step for me is: Getting the pattern fitted..
It seems so much trouble to make the muslin..I am "always tempted" to skip this part and get right into
the fun part.. Judy
If it's more expensive fabric: cutting!
I haven't yet figured out how to do zippers or buttonholes. So I am dreading those. And anything involving a ton of precision or hand-sewing. I try to be precise, but it just doesn't work out so well.
I've just spent ages tracing out a pattern and cutting fabric - I'm going to add that to my list of "dreaded steps" - wish I was still in my "ignorant" state about tracing patterns out!!
