Though making clothes usually elicits images of sewing, the actual process is more focused on cutting. Fabric is the limiting factor of clothing production, and once something is cut it cannot be uncut. Though cutting is the most stressful part of the process, it is also one of the most interesting. Figuring out how to place pattern pieces so that the design lines up perfectly is a challenge and is not always possible, but it is extremely satisfying when it does happen. Once everything is cut out, the pieces are a puzzle that has to be pinned back together.
