Top Mistakes to Avoid When Sewing Men's and Boys' Sewing PatternsGone are the days when people think that men and boys don't have to be fashionable. In fact, more and more men are starting to experiment with sewing their own clothes. Boy patterns and men's sewing patterns are so common now that hundreds or even thousands of options are available. To make sure you come up with only the best results, here are some sewing mistakes you should avoid, so your clothes don't look homemade:
Using the wrong fabricIt's totally okay to experiment and not use the material recommended by the pattern designer. However, you need to take note of what element the pattern designer focused on so you can come up with an appropriate alternative. If the point of the pattern is to create soft layers, don't use a thick and stiff fabric as a substitute. It doesn't matter if you're an advanced dressmaker; your clothes will still look homemade.
Cutting without checking alignmentFor more accomplished tailors and dressmakers, "eyeballing" for straightness is something that feels natural. Remember, though, that our eyes can trick us into thinking that we are making a straight cut. There's no better way to ensure straightness than with a yardstick. Make sure you measure and align before you make any cuts. Once your pieces have been cut, there's no going back. So, make sure you do the right thing from the get-go, so you don't end up wasting precious materials and time.
Ignoring Markings on the PatternsA lot of designers who sew are vocal about finding markings on their patterns annoying and a waste of time. The excitement of a new pattern makes them want to rush to the sewing machine to get things done. Remember, though, that skipping this step can cause you more problems in the end. The truth is, regardless of how many times you ignore these marks, you are going to go back and mark them later anyway. What's worse, you're going to have to mark a partially sewn garment, which will take more time. Additionally, you risk marking the wrong spot, unlike if you made the mark in the beginning. You could end up with uneven sections, which will definitely make the clothes look homemade.
