Even with the exclusion of embroidery and cross stitch in the sewing tag, could it be argued that the tag is still too broad?
For example, questions about adjusting patterns to fit properly might be easier to find under a tag like tailoring than sewing, because it falls under that specific field.
If you're looking for an answer to a dressmaking question, it could be harder to find because of the sewing tag also contains repair job information like fixing a hole in a teddy bear.
I know there's not a lot of traffic in sewing yet, but it's an idea I had when writing my own question earlier today.
We have a sewing-machine tag, so why not split the questions further with a tailoring tag. There are separate tags for different papercrafts after all.
