Now I know why people have melt downs on Project Runway. I made so many mistakes with this project that were completely unnecessary. 1. I bought the wrong pattern size. They are final sale. 2. I washed the fabric, thinking I was so organized – it’s wool. It didn’t shrink, but now it’s kinda itchy. However, I decided that I really love having it lined. This does double my steps though. And I still have to match the pattern, which has significantly upped my stress. But I have faith that in the end, this is going to come together. After all – I made sleeves – with cute pleats!
