I just successfully created my first pair of slacks and skirt. I tried on the pants and asked SO for his opinion (mistake). At first he said that everything looked great, then he said "Well, the hem is not even, going straight across."
He only said that because I earlier this morning I let him closely examine the pants and he looked at the hem at eyeball level, otherwise you couldn't even see the difference standing face to face and not face to hem.
Anyway, I usually wear my pants really long, draping over my shoes but not enough to touch the floor, esp. with high heel boots. That's how I like them, don't ask.
Then he proceeds to tell me that it will probably take years to get it 'just right', so I shouldn't 'expect it to be perfect or wearable'. Now I've jacked up the hem trying to 'perfect them' to his standards...
(which I will never do again).
Do you think he was being overcritical or I'm being oversensitive? I think it takes some people a long time to pick up things, some people weeks, some people days. I've been reading these boards for days and enjoying all the positive feedback no matter how the clothing looked. I guess I was expecting the same from him. Not. I'm a big gurl, so anything that fits good makes me feel good. I was soooo proud of myself and now I feel deflated like a flat tire. Guess I'll have to turn them into gauchos or something. Note to self: seek feedback from Craftster members 1st...or only *hehehehehe* I'll post pics as soon as I find the camera.
