I taped 56 pieces of paper together, very carefully (with trimming).
Then I rough-cut the individual pattern pieces out.
This sounds relatively simple - and it was - but it took *hours*. If I have the choice between buying a pattern for less than say, $10 and doing this again? I'm buying a proper paper pattern.
Then I caught up on my big stack of ironing (the perils of wearing clothing from linen and cotton). Now I shall sew on a button, while watching Gertie's next video in the "how to" series. And then I shall go to bed.
