I thought I would allow others to benefit from my experience.
1) don't wear black when sewing, but especially when dealing with fleece
2) don't wear floppy sleeves. These can get cut or knock off small pattern pieces form the sewing area when you don't look carefully enough
3) Don't sew in your pj's if you are trying to fit yourself....no undergarments mean no support and that means too low bust darts and an odd fitting garment.

Do not wear red lipstick while sewing!

Me too! (Thought I was the only one.) Even slippers are out. Probably the result of living in tropical climates and having a stiff foot pedal. Now despite a great machine it's just a comfortable habit.

Some good tips. I cannot sew with shoes on. It is always funny when I take a class and have to remove my shoes, sometimes slippers are ok.
