I recently bought a sewing machine so that I could make myself a halloween costume. It inspired me to make something else, so I went to Joann Fabrics and picked out a pattern. I bought the fabric I wanted and everything and went home ready to whip this thing up. HA!
Patterns are not easy, especially if you are easily frustrated.
I meticulously cut out all of the peices (TWICE, because my garment is reversible). Then I flipped over the page to the step by step instructions. That’s when my head exploded. I called it a night. So yesterday I went back to it with motivation to finish. The package misleadingly says “sewing time: 2 hours.” WHAT A BUNCH OF HULLABALLOO! Took me all freaking day to make this. And then I had to rip the seam of one of my sleeves because I stiched it inside out. My needle broke once and a couple of times I forgot to put the guide foot down so things went a little haywire. I was ready to take a hammer to the damn machine.
