mistakes...HATE EM....

I got off the computer early this evening....to cut out a pattern.  I barely did any sewing this weekend and I had all these plans to sew a new shirt/jacket for work.  So, being Sunday evening I started feeling the Monday blues early and decided to quick cut this thing out.  I picked a fabric I had bought at Fabric Mart...it's a navy blue brushed cotton.  It doesn't have a nap, but the slight brush on it definitely goes one way (or is that a nap??).  Wouldn't ya know it....I cut out the sleeve going the opposite way.  ugh ugh..  I haven't made an error like that since I was a teenager, when I was learning....What was I thinkin??

Now, I'm going to wait to see if it's noticeable in the daylight tomorrow.  If it is, I'll just make it short sleeved.  I didn't buy enough to cover another long sleeve.

So, I poured myself a glass of wine and watched the movie Top Gun.....

Now, I'm going to bed early.....

UPDATE:  I looked at the front and sleeve side by side and didn't see much of a different..so I'm a thinkin I will go ahead with it......i'll take pics.

Ohoooo, I know that feeling. I did that once a long time ago, (not that it couldn't happen to me again now). I knew I was supposed to do something special with the layout of napped fabric, but I didn't know what. I made the dress anyway and wore it. I'm sorry that happened to you.

I hope it doesn't really make a difference. I make so many mistakes that I couldn't begin to list them all. I should never try to get in a hurry or sew when I'm tired or feeling pressured.

well i'm thinking of just making it short sleeved...I have enough fabric left for that....most mistakes I make I can rip out...this one I can't...you sure need patience when you sew, don't ya??

Hey, a glass of wine and a good movie usually makes most mistakes better :) .
