I had a nervous breakdown making this skirt. Started of with enthusiasm, great idea and all, but this fabric was awful, my hands were all blue…Than I decided to throw it in a washing machine and after that all hell broke loose… :/
When I finaly managed to finish it, it was too small. ARGH!

    The end product looks very good… I could very easily wear this skirt! Love the gingham lining of the suspenders!

      I`ve managed to fix it this time, took off the waistband and made a new one, gingham on the back of the waistband too, shortened the upper part and-uala!-I`m in! Yeah! :D

    If you have troubles with fabric bleeding color a lot you can try to set the dye by washing it in a cold wash in the washing machine with 1/3 c vinegar and 1/3 c salt. :)

    it is still very cute and you probably have a friend who can enjoy it wearing it, so all is not lost.

    I’m sorry that you had a rough time with it- I definitely know how that feels. The good news is that, even if it is too small, it looks super cute!

      Thanks, when I cooled off a bit, I had an epiphany how to save it…I`ll try to save it one more time tomorrow, haha. :))
