This past week I've been working on a new swing jacket. As I posted on Facebook, this pattern is the worst pattern written in the history of the world. No, I'm not exaggerating. I bought it, along with 2 more, from a vendor named Barb at the Sewing Expo last month. ARGHHHH! It contains hand-drawn illustrations, completely misses the cuffs in the pattern as well as the instructions, and needs seriously proofreading -- 'sleve' -- ugh. I bought the marvelous washable faux fur and cuddle fabric at Haberman Fabrics here in town, and ran my confusion about the collar past Cindy, one of their wonderful employees. I managed to complete the jacket despite all the pitfalls, and while I still have issues with the sleeves I do LOVE it! It's so comfortable and while it's not super warm it will make for a great Fall jacket.
Even including a selfie (ugh!)
