*insert lots of swear words here*

Please pardon the following rant, I just need to cyber-yell for a couple moments.

WHY CAN'T I SEW FROM PATTERNS!?!?!?!?! I have tried TWICE now to sew the shirt from the Built By Wendy pattern above and both times it have turned into such a mess that it is basically un-salvageable. And it suppose to be so easy! And I have seen other people have BEAUTIFUL outcomes with it. And I just can't sew it worth a damn. So now I have ruined about $15 in fabric and wasted another $8 on a pattern that I can't sew to save my life. *pounding head on sewing machine*

poor you, at least you can make awesome stuff without patterns. I remember seeing a very cute pair of pants not that long ago.

Maybe you are just destined to sew only your own original GerriJo style threads?

but much sympathy on the ruined fabric and time spent :(

Hi, Just found you via wardroberefashion. I've made most other Built by Wendy patterns with no problem but i can't do this either. I've tried twice and just can't get it right. You're not alone :)
