Wow… This week has sped right on by, without me (Tessa) even noticing. When reminded of the fact that it is Thursday, I was stunned; I was taken aback. “What?” I said, “Really? I thought it was Tuesday!”
Anyway, nothing super big happened today. I finished my collar, and so then I started on my sleeves.
I had a really difficult time pinning the sleeves, therefore that took forever. (Stress on the ever.)
Once I finally got the sleeves sewed on to the shirt, I needed to then serge them.
Oh, but wait! The serger had come unthreaded, so I waited for a while, as one of my classmates was rethreading it.
Okay, when I say that the sleeves took a long time to pin and that the serger issue also took a long time, I am not joking.
So in the meantime, waiting, I chatted with my classmates. What we talked about now escapes me, although I am writing this on the train on my way home.
By the time the serger was fixed, I had the time to do just one sleeve before the professor called us up to discuss buttons; to talk about the ones we need to buy.
After that, I went to go do my other sleeve. While I was using the serger, I realize that something was amiss. I stopped to check it out.
I found that I had unintentionally serged into the fabric of the sleeve, which was something I did not want to do. At all. So I have to get rid of that sleeve and cut a new one and stuff. Shoot. I wasn’t expecting to have to do this!
Ahh, well, life happens. At the very least, I’ll still be ahead!
Bye for now-
