    have sewn or have sewed

    Which is proper - I have sewn ...... or I have sewed.........? I read "I have sewed" frequently, but that seems incorrect to me.

    Thank you.

    Re: have sewn or have sewed

    It varies from English to English. In Br Eng there's a strong preference for 'sewn' - I feel; but a lot of people (even here) use the regular marker.
