I had read Vain and Vapid's tutorial months ago, and this one as well, but I didn't re-read them before I tried it. I spent all of five minutes actually sewing the skirt, and I did a sloppy job (of course). Sewing curves at high speeds isn't really a good idea. Also, I think the scallops would have looked much better if they weren't so deep. I used fabric that I cut off as the facing and I think it would have been better to use a light cotton fabric.
I cannot wear this. I had to hem it above the kick pleat at the back and so it's really, really short. And puckered. Oh so puckered.
I'm glad I tried it because I learned from it, but at the same time, I'm sad that I chose to destroy a skirt in the most delicious shade of yellow. There are so many ugly colours of skirt to choose from at the thrift shop, and I chose my beloved yellow. Woe, woe.
