How to Reverse Sewing Seams in Marvelous Designer
Are your Marvelous Designer seams tangled and your clothes going crazy during simulation?
Did you sew your patterns together in the wrong direction?
If your seams are sewn in the wrong direction, your clothing patterns won’t be able to simulate properly.
If you sewed your patterns together in a wrong direction, you can either edit your sewing and reverse the sewing seam line or delete it and redo it.
Usually, simply reversing a twisted Marvelous Designer seam line does the job.
What to do if you already simulated and your clothes got messed up due to the reversed seam lines?
Simply stop the simulation, undo the simulation (Ctrl + Z or click the undo button or click in the history tab) and then fix up your sewing and simulate again.
If for some reason the undo button doesn’t help and the clothes are still tangled, select all the tangled clothing pattern pieces (Ctrl + A) and then right-click and either reset 3D arrangement (if you arranged the patterns around the avatar using arrangement points) or reset pattern 2D arrangement (which will return the patterns to the positions you placed them around the avatar using your mouse or gizmo).

Here’s how to reverse sewing seam lines in Marvelous Designer:
- Select the “Edit Sewing” tool.
