Today, I attempted to follow a sewing pattern for the first time. It was a complete and utter failure! In short, the skirt I was attempting to make was too small to even pull over my hips. I swear... I took measurements before starting and picked the appropriate size pattern to cut out.... Booo.
Since I liked the fabric so much, I had to make something work. So, I made a few cuts and added a zipper (the zipper was a new experiment too). I still have a new skirt, but it's not like the original pattern at all and I'm pretty disappointed about it.
Even though I'm bummed, I did have a little bit of fun trying to put together a few outfits with it.
