I too iron the pattern, press as I go, mark the hem (sometimes with string dipped in cornstarch stretched across doorway). I don't straighten the end grain because it wastes fabric! I like to choose which fiddly things I do, though, rather than blindly following directions.

I had to lol that so many others end up sewing in their underwear. I thought it was only me!

Oh a cornstarched string across a doorway - clever! Yeah, I don't follow those steps on every project... it's nice to have them in my back pocket when I need them though.

I don't sew in my underwear but I am frequently to be found in my pjs!
