Apron Progress {tongue in cheek}

....Some say mistakes are still progress....

Well,  I have made a few...

Observe:


This post is just to let you know I have not been lax in sewing...simply lax,,, resulting in the ever possible "something slipped under the fabric as I was sewing" goof.

If one looks on the other side, one will find a pocket, nicely sewn.  Whenever I do something like this, I automatically shut down the machine and do something else so I won't compound the problem.  The solution usually comes to me after a few hours or so of observations, calculations, meditations and conclusions.

This is just one of the more recent "...tions" I have had to take.

Problems and solutions:

1)  How to combine two 90* angles without puckering... solution: turn them into curves.. This is my pattern, after all.

2)  Upper neck piece needs two right sides showing on both sides (needed for button/button hole arrangement)...solution: sew right sides together and flip. Seems simple, why didn't I do it the first time?

3)  See above picture:  solution: rip time.

4)  Tweeking the pattern - solution: everything from decorative stitching to 2 different fabrics to who knows what as my brain wanders....

This will become my Beta Apron and you know how long they take to get right...

I now remember why I like quilting more than sewing clothes.....
