can I ask what do people find so hard about sewing sleeves? o.O
do people use the patterns that have slightly gathered ones and you have to ease them in?

*is curious*

for me it's the gathering and easing. I've done it once right before, but the current one I'm having difficulty getting it right.

It's supposed to be:

1. Sew two lines half a centimetre apart near edge
2. Pull on inner threads to gather
3. Evenly spread gathering
4. Sew onto body
5. Profit.

3, along with tidying and getting it to sit/look right worn is the problem.

even the thin stuff that I CAN bend is a ho, I cut some yesterday and it flicked backwards, the sharp end cut into my hand.

One piece nearly got my face grrr

THIS. If I didn't wear glasses, I think I would have got wire IN my eyes by now Dx. My hands have wire attack marks too.

I don't like trying to sort out how something works.

UNPICKING. OHGOD. I HATE IT SO DAMN MUCH.

... Sleeves are easy. I don't get why people don't like them xP.

I also hate when you get back from a MASSIVE cosplay shop (over $100-$200) just to find you missed something very small & important like thread or glue.

Procrastinating. Even though I know how good progress feels I'm a "Why do today what you can put off till tomorrow." person....

And yes having to unpick things you do wrong, and then being worried you'll screw up again....

Left-over fabric. Especially in colours you'd never use again. Like dirty yellow.

I hate running into things that I have no experience with. I have a big enough pattern collection that *most* things can be based on an existing pattern and modified - but when I get something that is completely alien to me, I HATE IT.

Also, when you can't find the pattern you're looking for. I know it's THERE why can't I FIND IT.....

I dislike the initial research stage, where I have to source tutorials or gawk at patterns and think about how I could modify them to suit what I'm trying to make. Basically, figuring out *how* to make something hurts my brain much more than any aspect of actually making it.

I have no experience with sewing, so EVERYTHING is unfamiliar territory. Everything I make has that "Oh gosh, I've never done this before! *HESITATION*" thing going on, so I usually end up asking a whole bunch of people for ideas and picking the one that makes the most sense to me.

I also have trouble deciphering the jargon in sewing instructions, so that makes life a pain in the ass too. X_X

Wigs! They itch like crazy! Drives me insane! gonk Does anyone else get this? I think I have a sensitive scalp or something. stare They also tangle, move about, annoying to style and are just a general pain in the butt! stare I do have one wig I love although most of them are a pain. nodnod

Oh yeah that's right, I still have to fix my Euphemia wig as one of the buns has started falling apart, I hate brushing that, it's ridiculously long and takes hours to get all the knots out of it, looks like candy floss too. stare XD Oh and when you put the buns on you have to slide the metal combs through the wig and into your own hair otherwise they won't hold, hurts like hell! >_<

Having to put up with those weird cosplayers hanging around me all the time.

... I jest~

(my real least favorite part is looking at photos of my cosplays-- I get all worried like 'no, I forgot to put on my gloves!' or 'fff-- THAT POSE LOOKS TERRIBLE')

Motivation - knowing that you should be working on something, then leaving it for the last minute.

Oh and that first cut into the fabric. The fabric is so pristine, and pretty, and that first cut means you are committing yourself to something, for x amount of hours. Sometimes it's scary stuff.
