So, after all that--finally getting my material and all, I set down yesterday to cut out my work shirts. Much to my dismay, I discovered that I'd read the pattern wrong, and hadn't bought enough material for my size.
After gakking for a few minutes, I considered other options. I could run back to the store and hope they had enough left--and a sales clerk handy-- to get the extra I'd need to finish. I quickly discarded that idea.
It only took a moment for me to realize that all was not lost. I ran into my craft room and dug through my old patterns until I found the one I wanted. Sure enough, the yardage needed was the exact amount I'd bought.
Lickety split, in no time at all, I had three new pairs of shorts, well, almost. Here they are, eagerly awaiting elastic, which I will have to go back to the store to get. While there, I will make sure I get the correct yardage needed for my work shirts.
And all will be right with the world again.
