And how did I end up sleep deprived? It's that gift at fault. Lessons learned:
- It will always take longer than you think.
- Just because you've made something before doesn't mean that you won't screw it up.
- Don't sew at 1am.
I generally screw this part up so you'd think I'd learn, but even with my notes that make sense to me when I leave them, they don't when it's 8 months later. The process is to sew the channeling into the cup seam allowance, then cut the seam allowance and turn it into the cup for a partial band bra. It is important to sew on the correct side of the cup (which is not really intuitive) and the correct edge of the channeling. I did one thing wrong on one cup and the other thing wrong on the other cup. I didn't realize the wrong side of the cup until after the seam allowance had been cut. You want to talk about precision sewing? Yipe.
What sent me to bed was when I looked down to see this:
I chose to go to sleep.
I will post more pictures of the final result tomorrow. But lesson learned. Less sewing at 1am.
