I made a shirt.
There are only two mistakes. Serious, but understandable. This is after all my first time sewing a shirt.
One of them is obvious when you think about it. I tried to make a blouse and ended up making a shirt. Want to know what's the difference? It's where the buttons are. I mixed up the front panels. So much for blindly following directions.
The other, less obvious, but serious mistake is the size. I'm a size 4 these days, so I could not believe that my measurements would make a size 12 on the sewing pattern. So I made a size 8 (it's about half way, give or take a whole bunch). My shirt is too small. But I don't care. I'm just amazed that I sewed it all by myself, and it only took three days.
