Couldn't sleep. I reached into Half Finished Stuff Box. I pulled out a skirt I started a year ago that went very wrong. No pattern. Too small in the waist. That's ok, made it shorter. Fit in the waist. Fit too well and gaped. That's ok. That's why someone invented darts. Thank you whoever that is. No Gaping Waist Looking silly pics. But plenty of my attempt at darts. My attempt at darts after my attempt at skirt with no pattern. I think it took no fewer than 17 tries to get the zipper in. Whatever this fabric is deserves an A+ for durability.




sorry, shadows, and taking pics behind my back wasn't the greatest idea.

maybe with some ironing it will look better? I felt brave sewing darts randomly and wildly with no idea what I was doing.

I was happier then with no mindset.

Narhloki- thank you!
JapanAnne- and thank you too. My cats thought it was a great game to watch me at the sewing machine then watch and listen to me rip the zipper out over and over.  Be brave, try a zipper, know that there's someone out there that spent even longer than you to get one of the silly things in. Seriously, I just kept trying to hold it in place and separate the seams with my fingers.Not that it's the perfect zipper, but as soon as I got out the iron, and pins, and ironed the seams and pinned it into place it went in really easy.  I made alot more work for myself by trying to be lazy.

I was happier then with no mindset.
