I have recently made a toile of the Jorinde blazer and found the instructions (especially for the pockets) to be awful. I noticed that most of the other people that have made the jacket have also commented on the incoherence of the instructions. I am considering doing a photo tutorial and rewriting the instructions for the trickier parts of the pattern as I think it’s a nice jacket and I don’t want people to be put off of making it based on crappy instructions.
My first question/suggestion is that perhaps there could be a feature whereby if a set of instructions is marked by a few people as being incoherent then it gets flagged for review and perhaps a list is created so that anyone who thinks they can do a good job of explaining the process can do a tutorial.
Does anyone else think this would be a good feature?
My second question is, if i do my own tutorial for the Jorinde blazer, where can I put it so that it has the full potential to help anyone who downloads the pattern? I know I can link to it on my own project page but someone downloading the pattern won’t necessarily also look at my related project.
