Ooops! That sounds heart felt.
Been there too. Ended up making it up as I went along. Can't remember what it was I was trying to make at the time, probably a dress. I seem to recall one where the sleeves just wouldn't attach as instructed.

And knitting pattern writers who become vague, and sometimes downright wrong, by the end of the instructions!

I learned the beginnings of sewing by reading pattern directions. That was long ago and I don't need directions any more. I have felt great pity for anybody who is learning now, because the directions will leave you with a piece you didn't need and never sewed in, or wondering why the front is so much smaller than the back, or why did you have to buy a couple of yards too much fabric? A pox indeed.
