I cannot tell you how much I dislike the cheapie Dritz sewing gauge. They bend, they break and that stupid blue slider doesn’t stay put. Here’s how mine has looked the past six months. I refused to replace it.
I Y Sigrid. For about six months Sigrid collected Knip Modes for me. When they got to me, inside the package was this sewing gauge.
I love that it’s in centimeters, because it’s easier for me to find 1.5 than 5/8 on my tape measure. I will love this “zoommaatje” until I accidentally leave it on the floor and step on it and break it (not that I did that with my glasses last year. Or my mother’s five years ago). Then, I will wish someone else had done it, so I could be mad at them instead of myself.
The pockets look a little worked over, but they are in. I’m not happy with the side yoke insertion (right hand corner photo below). Next time, I’m going to mark the seam lines so I get a nice square rather than a wonky curvy mess.
The next step is the fly front. Which I am avoiding. It’s just sitting on my cutting table giggling like Chucky.
At least I can still sew!
