The pattern sews up well, although this time around I managed to put the pleats and the pocket on the wrong side. Mmm. Don't ask my how. I looked at the pattern placement ten times I'm sure.
The main problem is the invisible zipper. It was perfect, it really was.. except up the top as I sewed it over the waistband seams I veered too close to the zipper and as a result it wouldn't close. Urgggh. One of the little teeth looked dodgy but instead of pulling the whole thing out (I didn't have another invisible zipper) I only unpicked the top bit. I then was zipper shy so sewed too far from the zipper so now it looks a little bit ugly as it's not a perfectly 'invisible zippee' up there. I should have unpicked it again, but couldn't bring myself to. I did redeem myself a little bit by sewing the waistband by hand rather than making anymore mess with it.
So this is my 'what's to be done face'. I wore it to work today and it was good, but I strategically had my shirt hanging a little bit down to cover up my zipper. I could just pretend there's no problem or I could fix it or I could take it to an alteration place!
Would it be bad to take it to someone else to fix!?
