I was finding SO much pleasure in making a relatively simple garment, from a lovely, stable woven, and all I wanted was perfection. Is that so much to ask? I measured, basted, adjusted, and thought I had a perfect line at the collar band seam, but nooooo...... And not just one side, but BOTH sides. That's a little more than just a turn-of-the-cloth error.
Oh, I might add that I didn't catch this until after I had trimmed and clipped my edges - not until I was pressing. But of course.
So tell me, 1) Have you ever made a perfectly stitched garment that required NO unpicking? (please just lie to me if you have).
2) Will I ever make a perfectly stitched garment that requires NO unpicking? (feel free to lie to me again....)
For what it's worth, one side is now repaired; I just had to come and vent a bit before re-doing the other side.
An aside: I know I've been a bit absent from blogland lately, but I'm sewing again, and look forward to catching up on my blog reading-and-posting....and I'll see a few of you Monday night at Canada College's shindig!
