Pretty new to this art form and may have bit off more than I can chew by trying to make a polo shirt, but I'm giving it my all. I'm almost done with cutting all the pieces and am just about ready to start sewing but there are a few things I'm unclear about.
1. When the directions tell me to press seams toward front or back, what, exactly does this mean?
2. How vital are the grainline instructions? I can't even see a grainline on the fabric I'm using.
3. Pretty much the same thing regarding the nap.
Any and all help with these questions will be much appreciated. I hope I don't bore you too much with these and any other problems I might have in the future.
Thanks in advance.
