When I try a pattern for the first time, and I am not sure how it will turn out, I will often leave out the time consuming details like belt loops and patch pockets. If the garment turns out to be a wadder, then I would not have wasted precious time on these little details.

If I like the finished product and I decide to make it again, then I go all out to add all the little details that will make the garment special.

Thank you so much for this cute tip Sandra and for introducing me to the term 'wadder'! I know what you mean, now I've got a word for it. I've taken to sewing up tests in muslin. If they work I can then do some embroidery stitchouts on them for practice and if THEY work then I've got a unique garment to wear.
