I love making bags and purses, I really love playing with pretty fabrics and I love sewing...
Sometimes it doesn't always go to plan.
Last month I hosted the August Lil Pip Challenge and set out to make myself a skirt. I'd been given a huge bag of fabric and found a pretty floral print that I thought was perfect for the job. I didn't want anything fancy so I measured the length and width plus a little bit and stitched down the sides. Once I'd threaded the elastic I tried it on.
I didn't like it. It didn't sit right.
So I tried it on again and I think I can make it work. I need a slightly wider elastic and it needs to be shorter. Just a little bit, knee length rather than below the knee. I haven't made these changes yet but I'm sure I'll share it over on Instagram of Facebook when I do.
Have you ever tried to make something that didn't turn out the first time? I'd love to know I'm not alone.
