    Instructions never make sense to me :) I just have to close my eyes and hope for the best most of the times. You are not alone with the frustration.

      Ahhhh…thank you Trudy! I feel much better knowing I’m not the only one who struggles with some of the ridiculous pattern instructions, especially those very badly translated burda patterns! I swear sometimes I will be zipping along when I come across a term I’ve never heard of or find a reference for only to discover my gut was correct and the translation made no sense! :D.

      I hope you’re doing well and sewing up a storm. I love seeing your creations. Your projects are always inspiring. Have a lovely holiday…and I wish you an early and very happy new year! X
