I haven’t seen this pattern (sent by Theresa, thanks!) before, have you? It’s advertised as an “instant dress”, with a ONE-PIECE pattern that you lay down as well as cut out all at once.
Looking at the back, I believe I see two pieces, however no matter. What’s fascinating to me is that this pattern (available at RustyZipper) is still uncut. even immediate takes as well long for some people …
I believe there are two type of sewists: the ones who want to get to the completed product as quick as possible, as well as the ones for whom the getting there is (more than) half the fun. I utilized to be absolutely one of the “cut it out as well as run” folks; as I get older I relocation much more towards the “enjoying the process” people (although that may just be since I am trying to delight in the doing of whatever as much as I delight in the ends — except for teeth cleaning at the dentist’s, that may be permanently beyond my reach).
The “process” people ought to not be confused with the perfectionists who never surface jobs since they are always dissatisfied with their work as well as want to rip it out as well as do it over (again), as well as the “make it today, wear it tonight” ought to not all be accused of being slaphappy people who utilize fusible everything, although in some cases I see that happening. (Luckily, not here!)
Which are you? have you always been a “I gotta wear it now, where’s my stapler?” or a “here let me surface these seams by hand in small stitches with silk thread” person, or did you switch camps?
