If you want to guest post on my blog, scroll down or click here for more info. I do still have a couple slots open and would love for you to participate!!!
So, I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was going to make a skirt in the Noodlehead sew-a-long. I was a little slow getting it finished because I ran out of thread at the end and then even more slow in getting it photographed, but here it is... finally!
I'm proud of it because it is the first *real* piece of clothing that I have sewn... I used a real pattern and it has belt loops and pockets and a real zipper and everything!
However, it doesn't fit me.
Nope, I made it too big. I was warned in advance that the pattern ran a little large, so I went down a size after taking my measurements. Turns out I should have gone down about 3 sizes.
And I'm so sad about it. But I really don't think I can fix it without just starting over.
Oh well, I guess I'll chalk it up to good practice. I'm sure not many beginning sewers get it perfect on the first try. And it does look nice.
Here's hoping the next skirt I make goes a lot more smoothly!!
