I really need to stop second guessing myself. My intuition is often right when it comes to modifying patterns/clothing. I often have everything planned out and working out well until my analytical mind comes in and second guesses the modifications. Usually I’ll change the pattern to match the analytical observations instead of going with my original modifications. Don’t get me wrong, I love my analytical mind, I just wish that I would incorporate the analytics with the intuitive hunches better.
You’re probably wondering why I brought that up. Well, it’s because I did it again. I second guessed my intuition and now I have to fix my mistake. Unfortunately, I didn’t account enough ease into the length of my pant legs for my Maria Ross cosplay so I have to add at least a four inch strip to the bottoms of the legs in order to be able to sit or walk or bend my knees without splitting a seam. Gah! I wanted these pants to be perfect, but they won’t be without the legs being too short and the cuffs not fitting right. Ah well, I learned. Now I just have to make sure I don’t do that again. Pants are turning out to be a lot harder and more time consuming than I excepted.
