Getting back on that horse. )

These are retyped instructions, since I am terrible at following pretty much all technical writing ever. I don't think I'm going to get anything besides retyping these done this morning, or in fact today, as it is my birthday and hopefully I will later be eating cake.

I keep having to remind myself that I will fit all these steps in my head eventually and they will seem like second nature. I also originally thought that I was capable of a garment a week, and I think I am, but I would have to do it every single day no breaks at my present skill level, and I have other things to do with my free time. I think sewing every third day is more realistic; I think I can get things done in seven sewing days, but the number of sewing days I've got is going to vary. I still want to get my sewing plan pushed through with some alacrity, though, partially because having a schedule keeps me from putting off learning the hard parts, like zipper insertion and proper hemming.

Also, I managed to buy the right zipper color without bringing along a fabric sample, but the thread I got is a little too dark, so I have to make it to the sewing store (maybe tomorrow morning?) before I can do any visible stitching. So at most I can cut out and construct the lining before the weekend.
