heyya, thank you. i just. i managed to totally miss the point that why that skirt looked so neat to me was how it hung, and the stripes at angles, and vertical and horizontal and all. sort of a biting into a slice of red cake expecting cherry and getting strawberry. why i should be so surprised i dunno. but i sure was Wink

At  11pm I decided I really did want to try and make a skirt today, so I looked through the tutorial list, thought RickRackRubys striped neat hemmed skirt, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34064.0, would be awesome- wait, Ive got no striped stretchy fabric. Thats ok, I have a whole lot of this eyebursting stretchy fabric.

Mistake of the day #1- when the pattern/tutorial asks for a specific fabric you dont need to blindly believe it, but think about why. Really stop and think about WHY it asks for that fabric if you want to deviate. Skirts doing neat stripey visual tricks-AWESOME. Skirts causing seizures in passerbyers on the street is not so cool.
Success #1- used my sewing machine w/ stretchy fabric and it went great. Love zigzag stitch. Not much else to say about that.
Successishness #1  - like using the giant cutting mat rather than measuring, seems a whole lot easier than fighting with the cats for the measuring tape, I throw the measuring tape to them to distract while I wield scissors, all is well.
Lessons for both good and evil learned for the day. Dont think Ill ever wear it. I think Ill shove it in the suitcase of things to reconstruct. Maybe it wants a second chance at life as a blinding tank top, or something.. not sure.. but thatd be another lesson.. pattern+cut=visual impact.. sometimes that impact is a pleasant touch. Sometimes its a boot to the head.  Both are great, its just good to have a vision of whats to come when you start, at least an inkling.

thanks to great people like rickrackruby for making tutorials Smiley it was amazingly well written and made me smile to read.

!!!!! ok, excitement expressed. i don't usually like maxi dresses, ok i like them but i feel sort of like a sawed off log in them. this though. !!!! more excitement. yours is lovely, and you give me hope that i could wear them! it reminds me of a 1910ish tea gown instruction thingamig i was looking at online awhile ago. yours is elegant like that but wearable without seeming costumey. playing dress up can be fun but.. oh. yeay for wearable and elegant and not getting owned by the dress. i babble. it's just so pretty though. thank you for sharing and making a tutorial:D
