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
