Why do I always think “the next step is cutting my fabric…that will take a half hour tops”. So stupid! I spent over two hours cutting out my skirt. I cut out some where around 32 pieces…5 of which I had to cut twice because I cut out the wrong material. Really, how does one do that? That cost some wasted fabric…grrrr.
There is actually 6 pieces I didn’t have to cut because I planned on using wide lace instead. I bought tons of that thinking there would be left overs for cuffs FOR SURE! Not. I didn’t buy enough length and the lace I bought is too narrow so I will need 50% more to piece it together and make it wider. I will need 6 meters more to do what I want! I went from having plenty left over to needing 6 more meters. Please God, let there still be some in the store!
It is just a “simple” skirt? How can it be so much work to cut it out?
