I made a skirt!

I'm finally posting it because I finally finished it! Let me tell you, it was not easy. I now know why designers like making clothes for models without any curves! I kept adjusting my skirt because it wouldn't fit right. It was loose in some areas, and tight in others and it was pretty frustrating, but it is finished.

I wish I could've had pictures of the step-by-step process, but seeing as how it changed so much, I thought it would be kind of pointless and misleading. It's cute and it fits. Next time I just need to actually use a pattern! My goal is to make a skirt this year that doesn't have to be re-done 100 times, and that is the right pattern for my body type.

Here it is:

And this is my bow I got at this really cute shop in Boston called Stone Flower. =]

Anyways, hope my sewing troubles amuse you. Stick around and I'll eventually get it right!

Love, love
