Stash Reduction Skirt Enlargement
It's not as painful as it sounds. There comes a time in every crafty girls life where she realizes the vintage fabric will not make itself into a new skirt. There also comes a time in every crafty girls life where she has been working behind a computer for too many months in a row and her behind starts to show that she has been behind a desk (and she ate her way through Chicago last week). I'm hitting the gym and upping my veggie to junk ratio, but I sincerely doubt that will make a difference by next week when I go to Florida, where the weather is hot and many eyes will be on me.
So I'm getting my sew on!
I also signed back up for eHarmony -yeah we're back to that- and I feel I need some cute date-wear to give me that extra bit of confidence, and seperate me from the sad, sad women limited to shopping at Forever 21 (when they're 32). Hopefully this time Mr. Right will present himself, as I am not interested in doing this for the rest of time. I know I have to keep kissing frogs, but holy crap! The endless supply of pond fodder is starting to wear on my nerves.
But I digress...
Tonight I made some patterns. I used this as a starting place, but as per my usual, I changed it up a little to be more suitable for my tastes. I also ordered some more fabric (I couldn't help myself, it's an illness I swear) from a groovy online fabric shop.
I'll be cutting things tomorrow night, and posting some pics of the process. I think I may have even convinced a draper at work to fit me in my skirts so my bum-bum will look as hot as possible!
