For a weird sleeveless floppy thing, this garment took me forever. I would love to be one of those people that can whip up a wearable garment in a flash, and I kind of feel like I should be able to do it but I am not finding my toy-making skills are all that transferable. This is unchartered territory folks.
Have you ever tried to do armhole binding with a knit fabric ? I invented at least ten new swear words attempting that and one is still thicker than the other.
I know its all about learning, I just wish I could learn faster, that weird little only-attached-at-the-top flippy floppy pocket took me three tries and hours of brain work.
I learnt that given enough fabric it is sometimes easier to recut a piece than to unpick.
Unpicking an over locked seam will drive you insane.
Knits roll and expand and contract in ways that continually surprise.(and not in a nice way)
Sometimes buying a sewing pattern really will make things easier
and I learnt that twitter is an invaluable sewing resource.
