I made a grave mistake today; I will admit that I was impatient.
The trouble started with sewing in a sleeve, the first one was fine but the second one needed three tries and on the last try I ripped the seam instead of unpicking.

The result was a torn front. I was going to abandon it but it’s for someone else and they suggested patching it, so I did.

I made a bias strip, used fusible stabiliser (wash away) and zigzagged the tear. I then covered it with the bias strip. I looks OK, I was going to put a matching strip on the other side but David said not to bother…so I didn’t.

Interestingly asymmetrical. Just the buttons/holes to go.

I’m glad it’s over and I shall never do that again.

A new vintage pattern has arrived and two more on the way; will I ever make them? I hope so.

Take care in this viral world.
