I’ve decided to swap smoking for sewing thinking it could be my new thing I go to, to relax now I’m starting to wish I never did lol.
I bought a pattern but it’s so confusing or at least to a beginner, I know how to sew and what not but the rest is not my forte. Anyway it says two numbers like this:
45*/* 1 1/8 1 1/8 1 1/4 …
60/** 7/8 7/8 7/8
From my understanding the second lot of numbers are the amount of fabric needed and I know what the “*” means, but what’s the “45/60” all about? I’m so tempted to just give up and go back to smoking at least it was straight forward :(
