If I were a sewing superhero, I would have the power of Instant Sleeve Setting! Poof, perfect ease in an instant.

I'd also like magnetic hands to help me pick up pins, but that might have other unfortunatel results...

What's your Super Power?

I'd like to be the ruffle fairy and attach any kind, type, length of ruffle to anything at the flick of my wand. Hah!

I would have the power of perfect cutting! With correctly marked notches and all the chalk or thread marking done in an instant.

Or the ability to have instant duplicate copies of all my patterns so I didn't have to spend so long tracing them.

I would have the power of perfect and instant seam ripping. I don't know how many things I've ruined by a slightly too deep cut with the seam ripper, but it's bound to be sizable!

Measure twice, cut once. While this saying is useful in many ways, I have no qualms about editing my posts.

Ooo... tough choice between the Power of Perfect Cutting with all marked notches and chalk or thread marking done OR Power of the Perfect Hem which, in an instant, would perfectly hem every garment I made (knit, woven, including sleeves too)!

My superpower would be an extra eye, with an eyelid, on each of my pointer-fingertips. With them, I could have a good look at fitting places without twisting to see. I'd aim them at my back shoulder, waist, hip, side views and hey even for fitting pants crotch area. Then Tizmehr the Pattern Alteration Fairy would appear and transfer all the details to my pattern.

Come to think of it, those extra eyes would be useful for finding escaped items that fall behind or underneath things. They'd help me peer into too tall shelves, saving me a climb on the step ladder.

Same here. Pattern alteration fairy for sure. Second choice would be matchingt the pattern to the correct type of fabric. Not sure what kind of fairy you would call that?
