They’re not all winners. .
I self drafted a skirt out of some gauzy fabric and lined it with (I think) cotton lawn cause no one needs to see my bits at the office. I even added pockets. Did an elastic back waist. .
I tried it on. I didn’t think about my hip measurement and how I’d need to get this on over them when making the waistband. So there’s that oops. But then once I got it on all I could think is “oh I don’t like the shape of this on me at all.” Never mind the ankle socks. I don’t have enough to redo it or add to it and to make the waistband right I’d have to cut the skirt too short for my taste, so this one goes in the L column. And that is OK. .
This is how we learn. We try something, fail, and then try again. Failing is OK. .
Now do I save the fabric for something else or stick it in the donation bin? .
