What is the MingMakesMistakes series?

This is my series of blog posts written as a review and full pattern guide, aimed to make it a smoother process for anyone sewing this or similar. As I work through a pattern, I post in the blog as I go with short tutorials and advice. Once I’ve completed the garment, I pull everything together in one MingMakesMistakes post that acts as a guide to anyone sewing that pattern as well as others, since many techniques are applicable to sewing in general.

What's in a MingMakesMistakes post?

They include my experience with the pattern and fabric, changes I made for fit or construction method and why, mistakes and near misses, helpful tips I picked up along the way and includes links to all the relevant tutorials and posts. I hope you find these a great detailed resource for your sewing projects.

I don’t go into fitting changes in too much detail as these are always specific to the wearer but I will mention changes that may be relevant to others.
