Some days are not meant for sewing and today is one of those days. I'm working on a white shirt with french cuffs. This should be a quick and easy make but it is not because I'm spending my time making silly mistakes.
I noticed that I stitched diagonally across the upper end of the lap before I top-stitched. I removed the diagonal stitching to correct the error of my ways to make my second mistake. I top-stitched on the wrong side. Once I corrected that error I re-did the diagonal stitching and clipped my loose threads. And there we have my final mistake. A lovely hole clipped into my sleeve.
Some days are not meant for sewing.
Thankfully, I have enough left-over fabric to cut another sleeve and lap piece and start over again. I know that I can use some Fray Check on it and mend the hole but I'm really looking forward to having a nice shirt with french cuffs so I'm going to re-cut another sleeve. The other sleeve is inserted and it's perfect. So, I know I can do this. Not today though, I think it is time to call it a night and start all over tomorrow.
