At long last, M’s hoodie is finally finished. I spent an hour Saturday night and two more on Sunday sewing in the damn zipper.
Did it suck? Yes. Does it look good?
As you can see…no. No, not really. Although the zipper itself lies flat against the band (and when you sew in a zipper, remember not to pull the stitches too tight so it will lie flat), the whole thing waves.
I already know the fate of this garment. The recipient will say, “Aw, isn’t that nice!”, throw it in a drawer/throw it in the donation pile, and that, as they say, is that.
So why did I bother? Because. Because M is important to our family, and I wanted to do this. Anyway, after M sees what her daughter made for her, she’ll forget all about it anyway.
