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
Whew! Crisis averted!
