Why are patterns so confusing??

Posted on: August 28, 2009

I’ve been looking at patterns and trying to get some ideas for simple clothes I can make for Lily as a beginner project. I bought some adorable Amy Butler and Robert Kaufman fabric for a few outfits I want to make her, but I’m just not there yet. For now I need very basic, easy to sew projects (with cheap fabric) so I can get a little more practice. 

Reading a pattern is a flippin nightmare! Why can’t store bought patterns read like online tutorials?? I just don’t understand why the companies have to try to make things so confusing! I can get all the pieces cut out and then I’m usually lost by the time I get to the 2nd or 3rd step!

Check out this outfit. Maybe if I practice enough in about 20 years I would be able to make something so cute! I absolutely love it!
