Same thing could apply to me working on my man's shirt. I did the sleeve plackets yesterday, and although I've done them before, I simply forgot. I mean I was lost. I totally had a brain fart, and those trite McCall instructions didn't help me much.
Does it fold here, or over this way or past this? Geeze. Because all the instructions were on the placket it was so easy to get turned around, which I did, many, many times.
Thankfully I didn't have to rip anything, but I did have to re-iron quite a bit. In the end I finally got them all figured out. They don't look the best, and Im kind of cheesed by that.
One problem was my thread kept getting choked up in the machine.
I couldn't figure out why. Its clothing weight, 100% cotton Guttermann. Grr! Sometimes some things just don't want to be sewn easily.
But I'l take one for the team.
More shirt tomorrow!
