To Scrap or Not to Scrap

After flipping through my sketch book I thought it was time to finally tackle this yellow skirt.


All I have left is to add the waist band, but I can't help but think I should scrap it.



So here it is. I like it. Don't get me wrong, I mean look at those pocket stripes, right? Ribbon on the inside hem just for funzies, and it's mustard yellow


It even has back kick pleats, they look good flat, but only then. I used old trusty, and just cut a square out of the back and then sewed in a pleat panel. Easy mode. Well, turns out I should have angled something somewhere...hmm...I tried to fix it... I didn't fit it.

And I don't know if you noticed, but it wrinkles. Oh and I figured out the fabric smells.

Yeah, smells. I got it in my mobster deal where you don't ask questions on where it all came from. Anyway I think this hunk was stored on some damp basement floor, and the smell will not wash out. 

I guess I won't finish it, but it was so close to being so cool. I just wanted someone else to see it before I threw it away.


On a positive note, my sewing room is still on its way to getting done. This is above my work table. Those jars wine carafes are not only storage, but also pattern weights. Oh and BIG ups to the artist behind the art. Love ya girl.
