I purchased a baby pattern this weekend at the local craft joint. Pretty fabric, notions, and several precious hours of weekend time later and I was ready to poke my eyes out with the seam ripper — which was warm from so much use. Needless to say, the project is in pieces.
Am I the only one out there who would pay double for a pattern that was easy to understand? I swear I’ve yet to complete a patterned sewing project* that hasn’t left me shaking and angry at my inability to understand the creator’s directions.
Either I don’t speak “McCalls” or I’m sew dumb.

*The one exception are Wee Wonderful patterns. Hilary gets it. Or I’m fluent in Wee. Your choice.
