I planned it out. I went through all my vintage fabrics to find the perkiest ones. I lay them out and observed them. I carefully cut the pieces out and sewed them into the skirt front...
And then it dawned on me!
What was, in my mind, a darling little vintagey-perky pool wrap skirt...had suddenly manifested itself into CLOWN WEAR!!!!!
As if it weren't enough to hang out at the pool with my boob exposed, here I was creating a skirt that would GUARANTEE that I get ALL eyes pointed right at ME.
I was in a dither. I had nowhere to turn! I didn't know how to salvage this mess!
But then I just remembered my default sewing choice and turned this gaudy mess into a very cute apron.
Then I got out some of my other cute, vintage, perky fabric and made a much CALMER pool skirt. I think this is much better, don't you?
That will teach me not to drop acid before I sew!
