thanks Lisa and Aly! That's what all the regular patterns honestly look like to me! I do hope someone makes something cool with this - but it probably won't be me!!
"Switch to Phillips bit" that had me rolling!!
This really had be laughing so hard, especially because I was recently struggling with a "simple" pattern for a pocketbook that had me so befuddled I wanted to cry. One of my favorite directions from this hysterical design - "Cut at least four, but no more than 7" LOVE this design! Can't wait to see what someone makes out of this!
thanks, Magi! Wow... I can't imagine walking through all of that redrafting! We were all on the short side of average and could get by with the regular stuff - I'm pretty well intimidated just with the NORMAL patterns!
Ha! Love it. Years ago (decades really) pattern did not come in sizes for the very tall nor the petite. This brings back memories of my mom, my sister, and me wrestling for hours with tissue paper printed patterns - measuring, cutting splicing, - repeat - until we got the pattern redrafted to fit out respective bodies - tall 5'8" - my sister, very tall 6' - me, petite 5'2" - mom. Have to make this a favorite.
thanks Cean! I'm scared to sew, too, but I have a friend here who helps me through the scary parts. But it feels much safer just to sit here by my computer and mock what I don't understand!

So clever and cool, Kelly, though just looking at this has just terrified me from ever trying to learn to sew, (even though I do need a new cuff flounce).
thank you, Amy! and THAT comment made MY day! ;oD
"Complexity"...LOVE IT! That made my day!
thank you Candy and Berene and Phoebe! Haha, yes, I ought to sew it all up into... um... something with pleats and darts and things! that would be a fun challenge!
I love, love, love this!!! Ditto what happysolucky says.
Hilarious. Love a pattern that gives all the info you need plus a whole lot more that you don't. I'd really like to see these pieces all sewn up into whatever it is that they might make. :-)
thanks Scrummy! And Victoria, I think you're right. All the old cut out pattern pieces are in my mom's basement, but I should haul them home and do something with them. They'd make a funny crazy-quilt, thanks for the idea!
Perhaps it's time to make a quilt. Perhaps just piece the parts of those old clothes together with some filler pieces.
I've been on hol with just my phone and I've been really curious about this one.... now on full screen in all its glory.... wow. Brilliant!! So fun and so clever :D xxx
thanks Victoria! yup, I need some 'best sewn by' dates on my clothes as well. I have a few in college that I pinned and cut pieces... now sadly out of fashion... sigh.
So, so funny. My favorite is the best if sewn by date in 2147. I have a skirt that will probably get done around then - I tried to do my own pattern for it so it's stalled; and I really identify with this.
thanks Rhonda, Janiece, Carina and Kelly! I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who feels that sort of panic looking at pattern pieces! Haha, Janiece, I thought about making a dress as well... if I lived in a bigger town I could probably get away with it! ;o)
Really funny, and too true :D
awesome, such a clever concept for fabric!!! love it :D
Love the simplicity reference as well. Run with it darlin. It's a hit. Love humor in fabric and life. I'd wear a shirt or dress with this fabric. I'd get so much attention and being a Leo in 5 major houses that is important.
Smiles quickly became loud chuckles as I read each set of directions on what, at first glance, appears to be a genuine set of pattern pieces with instructions! Most dressmakers would nod their heads and say that it describes the feelings of confusion felt the first time that they tackled a complex commercial sewing pattern! This is a terrific design idea for the sewing theme! The fabric would also be perfect to make into a tote bag to take to sewing classes!
thank you Jen, Veronica, Penny, Su, Rebecca and Janiece! I'm glad you've enjoyed it too! I think I'll scale it up after the sewing-theme contest and make a sewing machine cover out of it. <P>Only problem is, now that I turned on the ridiculous side of my brain I can't turn it off! I've got more silly things to add every time I turn around! ;oD
Absolutely love this! What fun.
Hilarious! There are some patterns that make me feel that way too! Especially the antique and older vintage ones. XD
Very very funny... I laughed even more when I read each piece... A witty take on the baffling science/ art of sewing...
Love the pattern! They all look like that to me. ;-)
So original & cool - love your humor!
