Normally, I would have attributed the trouble to my brain. It's easy to blame oneself for misunderstanding and begin doubting. This time though, I was confident it wasn't my brain since I'd just created a fairly complicated jacket with the help of excellent instructions.
One of the interesting aspects of sewing this was the flap. It's actually a few pieces fused together and topstitched. The instructions are so unclear about this point. There are pretty easy ways to convey that three pieces get fused together. I spent almost an hour trying to figure out what this hot mess meant. They could have just said "resulting in the three pieces fused together". I'm still having trouble understanding step 34, I had to go my own way. But what if you're new to sewing? You don't have any experience to draw on and it's a bummer.
|The most confusing instructions ever.|
|I don't understand what this is and I don't get why.|
P.S. I got the instructions for the coat out and guess what, no page one and two. I got page three and four twice. UGH!
