Sometimes my sewing flops. It's true.

You might remember when I made my lady skirt Simplicity 2257. That skirt is one of my pride of joy. So I thought that making a shorter version in a summery cotton poplin would be super awesome, especially if I had it in time for my trip to Argentina.

The picture is grainy, but this skirt is just frumpy. The hem comes up too short in the back, the fabric I used for a lining (a cotton voile) is sticky, and it just overall doesn't fit. Frustrating. I wore it anyway, but not excitedly. In fact, if anyone had asked me if I made that skirt, I would probably have denied it. 

You win some, and you lose some. And sometimes my efforts flop. I'll just keep going anyway.
