Still on a high from my last garment sewing success I picked up this Simplicity pattern for $1.50 thinking it would be a quick and easy project.  Apparently, I still have much to learn about apparel sewing. 

There are 4 pattern pieces and 13 (an omen?) steps.  Steps 1-6, a breeze.  Steps 7&8 might as well be written in ancient Greek and the diagrams look nothing like the fabric pieces on my table.  Thankfully I made a muslin first.  I sewed and unsewed it about 10 times before admitting defeat.  I feel like I must be missing something so obvious if I put it aside and come back to it later it will somehow all make sense.  At least that's what I'm hoping.
