I was up early this morning. 3 cups of coffee later I was ready to cut out my coat. I decided to review Edna Bishop one last time. I wonder how many sewists she’s scared / discouraged over the years with her constant harping on PERFECTION. I have to admit I was just about paralyzed into inaction, constantly questioning if I had achieved true Grain Perfection. I put all my self doubts aside, took a deep breath, pinned on my pattern pieces according to the diagrams and cut the coat out. Hooray! Today I’m going to shop for thread and some new bobbins. I also need to preshrink the lining and cotton flannel that I’m using.
