Well, one realization that I'd bought too many of one set of buttons and too few of the other, along with the fact that they were the wrong size, sent me back out today. I also picked up a seam ripper, machine oil, and bobbins. I then returned and spent the last four hours completely oblivious to the world, cutting, pinning, ironing, sewing, ripping, etc.
Right, "expected completion time two hours". I have to wonder what world these people are living in. Even without the ripping, it still would have taken me three and a half hours, and I'm not even done yet. I think most of the rest is hand-stitching, too...
The directions are confusing... I'm not entirely sure what they want me to do. This is probably a result of my inexperience. I've attached a picture of the directions - any ideas?
...gah... back... hurting...
Edit: Picture cut, I figured out what I needed to do. The wonders of the internet...
