The Hazards of Late Night Sewing
The last time this happened I was sewing cloud pajamas for DD's senior year one-act competition play nearly 5 years ago...can I blame it on sewing at 11:15 PM?
It's the little slice that occurs when the curved upper sleeve pleats itself under the seam allowance of the armsceye seam whilst serge finishing that seam...and you don't spot it before it goes under the knife.
At least it's on the back side of the sleeve. Perhaps we can, um, pass it off as a saber slice?
My first thought was 'Thank goodness this didn't happen on one of the lame' shirts...'
