This was my second crack at this pattern. The first was a purple monstrosity that only remains in my closet because I’m afraid to look at it again. Things went much more smoothly this time around. I didn’t pay much attention to centering/matching the pattern at all, though, and I regret it. I think this could’ve turned out a lot better if I’d been more careful. BUT WHATEVS. I COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES. CUT OUTSIDE THE PATTERNS. Or something.
On the bright side, I KILLED the invisible zipper. (In case you’re thinking about makin’ this one, no worries – the pattern actually calls for a regular zip. I just felt frisky.)
