slight sewing rage..

Sorry about the lack of posting this week, I have actually been working on something that I meant to have half finished to show today, but I have made practically no progress as I got so enraged with myself, my machine and sewing in general due to two factors

a) that despite having just sewn 9 beautiful seams, my machine failed 6 times in a row to sew the 10th, identical seam. It just keeps chewing it up and getting tangled. ARGHHHH! I shall try again later with different tension and a new needle.

b) I inexplicably cut a far too large hole in the middle of a circle skirt so that it is now too short and you could fit an elephant through (facepalm!). I dont know what I was thinking. Luckily it was only very cheap material and I have more. But still, not a very motivational moment.

  1. You poor thing! You could salvage your circle skirt by gathering the waist/adding an inverted front pleat or something so it is the correct size, and adding a band at the bottom in a contrast colour/pattern so it's the correct length. Won't be a typical circle skirt but at least it will salvage it into something wearable. Just a thought. :)
