Sewing Lessons…

Lucky for the population I am not a surgeon.   I was making this Deco Vibe Diamond Dress by Hot Patterns  and was working on the back vent,  I remember thinking ” should I be trimming this  corner”?…   apparently NO .  The dress has been hiding in the UFO corner since with a slice out of the hem.

I  cut out four shirts for Mr T and sewed up two.  I had a bit of trouble fitting the collar and facing which seemed a little big.  I didn’t think too much about it until I was sorting through the  pieces of the 3rd shirt,  to discovered I had cut 4 fronts and no back…..?????   I retrieved  the paper pattern to cut a new back and realised that I had added a 1cm seam allowance to the paper pattern’s back neck.  This meant the fabric had a 2cm seam allowance, which is why the collar wasn’t a perfect fit.

 I still mange to …..

: loose paper and fabric pattern pieces

: speed  through pins and the wrong parts of the  garment

: do my worst job on the most noticed button hole

: have a  “mistake”  in most garments

As yet, I have avoided the  sewing machine needle through the finger.     Are there any other lessons I need to be taught?

Enjoy your sewing
