Dressmaking shortcuts

Does anyone else do this?

I always use the selvage of a fabric for any centre back seam in the clothing I sew.

I do this for two reasons.  Firstly, I'd rather look at the selvage of a fabric than an overlocked cut edge. Secondly, it's one less step in the making of a garment so it saves time.

Oh, and I guess there's a third bonus reason sometimes, in that you get a record of the fabric used if you happen to cut up the right section of fabric.

What shortcuts do you have?
