I had no idea I was such a visual person when it came to sewing instructions. The complete lack of pictures in the Eva jacket directions has got me up the wall! And the ironic thing is, reading comprehension was always a really strong point of mine. Maybe that doesn't go for technical writing.
So here's what I'm wondering...
* Why does it say to sew everything with a zig zag stitch?
* What exactly am I supposed to do with that front piping bit?
* What are the end of direction #9 that cuts off mid-sentence?
* What am I supposed to do with those cuffs?
Truth be told, I'm winging it. I actually already did something with those cuffs, and provided I don't screw up the lining, I think it'll be pretty good. But I've decided, based on the look, not to use that on my suedecloth version. And I have one of the sleeves in for real now, and it's not puckered and facing the right direction. So that's good. So we'll see how my experiment in no directions goes. Even though it will have to wait for later because I'm off to dinner at a friend's house.
And no Project Runway for me tonight. Cable's out and they can't fix it till Saturday. Good thing our internet is tied to the phone company, or I'd be going really nuts. And at least if I have to miss an episode, it's the drag queens.
