Fast & Easy

In everyday life, Fast & Easy, means exactly that...Fast & Easy. As it relates to sewing it can often mean anything but. Fast and easy usually means fast and easy for the experienced seamstress only. It means fast and easy if sewn right out of the envelope with no changes whatsoever and using the exact suggested fabric. Fast and easy usually means five or fewer pattern pieces. It also means fewer opportunities for fit. In all, fast and easy is quite the misnomer. Are you ever attracted to a pattern because it is labeled as fast and easy? What has been your experience? I'm currently work on a Vogue pattern that's labeled fast and easy and it has been a PITA! It's going to be fabulous when I finish it but not fast or easy and the instructions are down right screwy!
