Last week, we had record-breaking warm weather here in Colorado…as in, near 70 degrees! This really got me in the mood for some spring-time crafting. I took a trip to the good old fabric store, and found a great remnant piece of navy jersey, just the perfect size for a new skirt. Oh, and did I mention that it was under $1!? Such a great deal!
Anyways, on the morning of the day I planned to get down to business, I woke up to this:
Um yeah. Not exactly skirt weather anymore. I still decided to make the skirt, you know, just in case. I did what I usually do when designing a pattern…take my measurements, tape a bunch of 8.5×11 pieces of white paper together until I get the size and shape I want, and start cutting. I sewed everything together, and tried it on before I hemmed the bottom and added detail, and guess what? The skirt was at least 2 sizes too small!! I really don’t know how that happened!! There must have been something seriously wrong with my math, or else I was secretly wishing that there was some way that I would fit into supermodel sized clothing. I don’t know.
Here is a picture of the skirt that wasn’t meant to be:
I didn’t add the cute patchwork I was planning on because really, I felt like there was no point.
In other news, I had Chinese take-out before I started the skirt. “Be sure to take your time on the details.” Yeah. That’s what my fortune cookie said. Coincidence? I think not!
