Do you ever get started on a project and even though it starts to go downhill you keep trying to find ways to save it? You’ve invested so much time already, maybe just a little more glue here or a bit more color there…sometimes the perseverance pays off and sometimes your husband just asks, “Is that what you’re wearing??”
(By the way, I started using “photo booth” on my Mac blog pics, sorry if it’s a bit grainy…still figuring it out)
Here we are with the original intention…skirt:
At first I was just using the Alexander Henry ‘Birdseed’ Fabric which I LUVVV to make a neat high waisted skirt but then I cut it too small for my hips so I got the idea for panels, easy way to add material, right? THEN my little brain thought I’d use the front of an old button down shirt for one of the panels that way I wouldn’t have to sew on a zipper. At the time I thought it was GENIUS but in hindsight I suppose it was more laziness. Anyway, then the back looked funny so I tried to incorporate some of the shirt material between those panels, at this point I had invested both of Sam’s naps on this skirt and was not giving up, I modeled it for P and he just gave me a deer in the headlights look of “I don’t know what to say here, I know I shouldn’t say it looks bad but she’ll know if I’m lying soo…” “That’s interesting.” Is what finally came out of his mouth.
Surely there must be something I could do…
Hmm, what if I hiked it up and made it a top??
ME:”Oh. Guess So.”
If you have a MAC I insist that you try photo booth, Samster and I had a great photoshoot after my little ‘sewing gone wrong fashion show’.
