100th Post!

Today is our 100th post!  And I bring you.....

 a quasi-craft-fail! the biggest, hippiest skirt ever. and it adds 10 pounds.  on TOP of what the camera adds.  ew.

How did this happen, you ask?  Well, I got some cute vintage fabric from my mother and a pattern for free as a result of a giveaway.  I was so excited...look how cute it is!
Buuut, I didn't modify the pattern to fit my measurements.  So, while the pattern fit my ginormous child-bearing hips, it maaaaaybe was a little too big or my waist, resulting in extra weight-adding gathers right around those child-bearing hips.  Oops.

Here is how I cheated and fixed my whoopsie: I hacked off a huge chunk of the skirt and then stitched it back together, without all those crazy gathers.  Not the worst.  But maybe I will stick to my trustworthy, fail-proof "A-line only" policy in the future.
Folded over to a more appropriate bulkiness

The massacre

Whew!  Crisis averted!
