Hahahaha! This was a LOL funny fail. Do you have any idea how many shirts I have made in my lifetime? LOTS, is the correct answer. On a new Archer shirt I
am working onfinished, I dutifully marked the button and buttonhole placement on the cuffs. Turns out the button mark didn’t look all the different from my buttonhole mark. Right. You can see where this is going now, can’t you? Yep, I stitched up a lovely buttonhole on the WRONG side of the cuff. And yes, I cut through it before I noticed.
What.A.Major.Dope. But it did make me burst out laughing at myself! 🙂
Wondering why I bothered adding a buttonhole on the correct side? Well, I had scheduled a photo shoot of the shirt the next morning, and thought maybe I could just hack the cuff together for the shoot. Who was going to notice, right? No close-ups! Well, 40 minutes later I had 2 new cuffs on my Archer shirt. Two?!? Yes, as drafted the cuffs would have fit around Godzilla’s wrists, so I was planning on replacing them after the photo shoot anyway. The buttonhole disaster just sped up the timeline. After a little “pattern liposuction”, I recut 2 new cuffs, stitched ’em on, and added buttonholes on the correct side of both cuffs. BAM!
Bet you didn’t do anything as funny as my buttonhole fail this week, now did you? Mwaaaah!
