There were a few quiet moments yesterday where I wasn't cleaning chicken poop or kid poop and Spenser and Sawyer were sitting at the dining room table putting together puzzles. It was at that time I got the brainiac idea to sew a quick skirt. (Insert laugh at the quick skirt part.)
I grabbed some vintage fabric (which I think was supposed to be this dress, but I didn't have enough fabric) and got to work. It was going to be another simple Simplicity 7229 skirt, but something went awry. I sewed up the side seams and then it came time to press for the waist casing, I couldn't tell which end was the waist and which was the hem. After turning the skirt up and down about eight times, I realized when I sewed the side seams, I had sewn the top to the bottom and the bottom to the top. Nice job, moron.
So I had to cut off the seams completely because I had serged them and there was no way on this earth I was going to pick out all those stitches, even if this was the last little bit of this vintage fabric.
And so there you have it. The I-Can't-Believe-I'm-So-Stupid Skirt.
(I added a pocket, too, because I wore this dress to church on Sunday and kept asking myself, "Lera, why don't you add more pockets to your clothes?" and "Why don't you sew more non-print clothing to embellish?")
