Arghhh! I feel so dump!
Why you may ask?
Well, I completed my Klaralund sweater, sewed the sleeves, sewed the body, sewed the sleeves to the body, tried it out...
... the sleeves,who are supposed to form the sort of v-neck drop down my shoulder!
I couldn't belief it! Was my calculation wrong? But that can't be!(not that I'm never wrong, but...)
After a moment of shock(say 5 minutes), I looked at the mirror again...hmm, what's that line...
I sewed the sleeves wrong side up!!!
Honestly, how dump is that!

I'm sorry, but that is the kind of thing I'd do. I once sewed a zipper in backwards--twice. :rollseyes: Will you at least be able to repair it?

Me too!

Comfort to you Javede--just think of it as a learning experience, though I know that probably doesn't make you feel any better! Are you going to be able to fix it? I hope so! *fingers crossed*

Thanks for your kind words!
First, yes I was able to fix it. Just had to undo the last seams and sew again(this time with the right site up ).
And yes, it's not the first time something like this happened to me...like when I sewed the left sleeve to the right side of my blazer...
Oh well, next time I will double and triple check it
