Fursuit Mistakes

If you are a fursuit creator then I'm sure you've made some mistakes in the past on previous fursuits- If you can remember some of them- what are the most common mistakes you made while making your first few fursuits? And how did you fix these mistakes?

If I ever get a fursuit, the only mistake I make will be the fact that it’ll absolutely kill my wallet.

I think this was for fursuit makers. But I can't help but agree.
I've debated on partials, or even just a Kigu, to make things easier (and comfier!).

I cut several pieces of fur with the nap/grain running the wrong way. Had to order more, thankfully it was black.

Also, forgot to loosen the needle tension & tighten the lower looper tension on my serger when making a ladder stitch. Had to rip out about about 2 feet of stitching but thankfully, I sew on the edge so no selvage loss. BTW, same suit - my youngest daughter's realistic Siberian Husky.

See it that way, if you buy it very cheap the mistake will likely be to have bought it so cheap
