poll- how much more yellow does this thing need. -this was a serious question, i think it might need pockets trimmed w/ yellow
i will now stop gaping at brightly coloured things.
my family will no longer call my clothing ugly.
i DID learn the importance of even seam allowances w/ this skirt.
i still have no idea where on earth i'd wear this. and it's a bit too dangerous to turn 180 degrees rapidly because. well. it twirls. and. it's short.
i'll go make another, longer circle skirt now. and my family can practice NOT saying, "ugly"
this fabric is garish, yes, but it was in my mom's fabric stash for years. she was strangely drawn to it and now i'm strangely drawn to it and so it became the skirt of the day. maybe not beautiful but highly sentimental. i have no idea what it is, it's stiff. it's heavy, it's cotton, but it's one garish print, so why not add a suitably garish yoke.
since i've been making skirts without patterns some of the reasons for even, consistent seams have been lost on me. today i realized several reasons why they are so important. yeah, sometimes slow on the uptake. the uneven look of it is because of the fabric. after several deconstructions the seams are all actually even and it really is a circle skirt now, not a 49.99% circle in back and 50%circle in front like it was in the beginning
it's not finished because i've had company/help for all the other bias binding i've made. right now the cats are probably ingesting a few yards of bright, frightening yellow not-finished-being-ironed-let-alone-sewn-on bias binding. i also realised i wanted it longer. not sure how much longer. taking a poll. i think adding a whole lot of scary yellow length is going to be bad, but the thing's never even going to get worn once if i can't safely bend over to pick something up off the ground without risking arrest.
after sewing willy nilly jut for the practice of it regardless of what fabric's available to me.. my closet is very.uhm. exuberant looking with the skirts hanging in all their glory. my mom'd at least be glad to see me wearing something other than jeans and a black tshirt
