How many times must one make the same mistake before one learns one's lesson? I cannot tell you how many times I have done this particular thing. The fact that it is simply more than one is mortifying enough. If I gave you the actual number you would laugh. Unless you had done it too. Then you would shake your head and say "Yeah, I did that once" and tactfully not stress the ONCE.
Once AGAIN, I have assembled a pair of pants I am making incorrectly. Sewing front leg to front leg, back leg to back leg down the inside seam. This is no big deal, other than I have made this particular annoying mistake soooooo many times. I will begin ripping as soon as I have a glass of wine.
