- Dyeing fabric outside is the pits
- I have been measuring myself incorrectly
- I still measure myself incorrectly
After the dyeing debacle, I looked forward to the ease of constructing a skirt. This is a pattern that I have used several times, but recently discovered that I was cutting a larger size than I needed. So, I scaled down to a small, fitted it with pins before stitching the sides, and sewed it together confidently. STILL TOO BIG!! I then took out the zipper, brought the side seam in another inch, and reattached the zipper. STILL TOO BIG!!
What the actual heck?
This is a functional piece that was made from a throw-away remnant that could have sat in my stash for eternity. That's a win for me.
