This skirt even has a name. It’s called Penelope because the day I sewed most of it I was probably suffering from ADD. I just kept doing, then undoing (thinking I made it wrong), then doing in a different way, then realizing I had done it right the first time, therefore undoing and finally getting it right.
I don’t know why I kept going. Clearly it wasn’t the right day to do it.
Anyway, I’m quite happy with the result.
