    would be kinda cool to get a step-by-step for a jacket/coat, if you ever feel like it. what's your least favorite part of making clothes?

    accurate. everything also gets destroyed by paint at some point. i buy cheap and ruin fast.

    well sewing with waterproof fabric is insanely hard, because it doesn't flow through the sewing foot, it gets all jumbled and sticks.
    that was ridiculous. don't really want to do that again.

    it's not bad though, actually.
    i've gotten decent much faster than i would've imagined
    attaching zippers and elastic can be hard. and i still have problems doing finishing on neck holes.
