|I got this idea from Peggy Sagers this weekend. She recommends that when it is time to begin sewing, we sit down and sew every seam we can before ever going to the iron. Sew princess seams (all four) the side seams and even the shoulder seams before getting up. Put together the collars and cuff, attach facings and pockets. For a jacket, sew the sleeve underarm. Put in the welt pockets, etc. Anything that isn't affected by another seam should be sewn before you need to go iron. With this technique I had my jacket muslin ready to try on in 15 minutes.
Now, how am I going to get my exercise? Oh well, at least I'll have more projects completed!
