After my full seat alteration fail, I washed and dried more denim fabric to try V8426 again. I just don't think this project was meant to happen right now. I pressed out the wrinkles on the wrong side (this is an important fact) and laid out all of my pieces to cut. When I started to pin the front pieces together in an attempt to sew, I just stared at the CF piece. There is very noticeable and permanent vertical line traveling down the length of the piece. Yes, you guessed it: it's the fold line from the fabric. I hate Joann's. Really, I do. Had I noticed it at the store, I never would have bought it. Had I noticed it when I pressed out the wrinkles, I would have moved the CF in 5/8" and added a seam. I thought about topstitching on the line, but I'm not sure how that will look since the other seams will be "raised." I don't have enough width to cut on the line and make a seam since the skirt felt a little snug to begin with. Sigh.
I am so done.
