I feel slightly like I have had a curse set upon my sewing… I saw a new challenge just today by Red of Sewredy called Fail February and I believe I made a comment, such as ‘this is a great idea, we all get our unpickers out and we learn from our mistakes’… I say I believe I said this… This is WHAT I ACTUALLY SAID.
So true to form… This happened
This is what will be a Sew Over It Anderson Blouse in gorgeous fabric from Abakhan. You will notice the sleeve is not going the right way. This is because I sewed it the wrong way round…. About 3 minutes after making the above comment. So I’m no so smug about learning from mistakes after all, the moral story of a teacher! Though I’ve never made this one and it WILL NOT be a mistake which happens again.
I keep seeing different challenges I’m going to join in with and have several on my sewing pile, such as a skirt for Designin’ December which Linda of Nice Dress, Thanks I Made It organises and trying to find a 1980s pattern that isn’t horrendous for The Monthly Stitch’s, Through the Decades February challenge, but it seems Fail February is the one for me!
This picture does indeed show the shoulder and underarm seam…in a line.
So… Here’s to reality and having a high quality unpicker friend! I’ll share more in this blouse when it is complete as my cuffs are to die for!!
