An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Friday, June 1, 2018
So I made a test skirt to enable me to work out how much fabric to buy for the next one, made a miscalculation and came home with insufficient! How daft is that? I decided to fudge it, knowing that the skirt wouldn't hang as well as the original because it's not cut properly on the cross. I figured that if it was really bad, I could just wear it at home. But I think it'll do. No one is going to stop me in the street and say, "Excuse me, your skirt is not hanging correctly".
The fabric is a teeny tiny houndstooth.
I'd still like to make a skirt according to the pattern, so I will have to buy more fabric, calculating more accurately.
