I realize that I promised a Christmas haul in my next entry, but I haven't finished taking photos of everything yet. So in the meantime, I'll give you all a bit of a head's up regarding my recent sewing projects.
Anyone remember that really cool green Skelanimals fabric I posted a while back? Yeah, well if you recall I was going to turn that into a jumperskirt. In light of my last sewing fiasco, I decided to play it safe and base the jsk off a pattern. Turns out, most patterns don't run very true to size and mine ended up being about three sizes too big once it was all finished. Indeed.....v_v
I did the best I could to fix it up without mucking it up too badly, but I'm still rather disappointed with it. It won't ever fit me properly (unless I go up about four cup sizes miraculously) and it looks nowhere near good enough to sell. C'est la vie.
I'm horrible when taking clothing photos, I do apologize. Never enough good light and nowhere to display things. My room is tiny.
Anyways....my plaid Christmas skirt with the elastic waist turned out much better. At least I can wear that and not feel completely incompetent.
And there you have it - did any of you make anything wonderful recently?
