Making mistakes is normal and human and expected.
However, making the same mistake twice is downright excessive!
I was working on this little jacket for my 18 month old for Halloween.
No pattern, just tried to cut around a jacket she has. All fine until we got to the sleeves. I did the right one first. It's cute. Even a little gather at the top to make it puffy.
That's when I got cocky. And set in the other sleeve.
And.... well, what would you call that? Inside out? Backward?
"Grr." I muttered and got out the seam ripper. Cursed myself for not basting it first. Cursed myself for the short stitch length I used.
Got it all apart.
Then I really thought about it. Carefully put it together. Sewed it again.
And did the exact same thing.
So now I think that I have perfected that mistake.
Side note: anyone want to guess what my youngest is going to be for halloween?
(that is, assuming I can manage to set in a proper sleeve?)
Hoping your day is seam-ripper free!
