Sometimes it pays to go with what you know. At least that’s true in this case: I decided to make a longer version of the Tourist Trap skirt from Sew What! Skirts, and it went together without a hitch. Whew! Skirt-sewing confidence has been restored, zippers and I remain friends – all good. Generally, though, I don’t have very good experiences with my sophomore projects. Oh sure, after Version #1 I’m filled with high hopes and grand plans about cranking out a dozen more of whatever-it-is in assembly line fashion. Then Version #2 is a mess from about the midpoint on, dropping me back to earth with a thud and causing me to abandon that stupid [whatever] forever. FOREVER!
I really like these skirts, though; I’m glad that I wasn’t forced to swear them off for good.
Skirt Month is coming to a close just in time, though. I think I’ve burned myself out temporarily, at least until I come across more bargain fabric compelling enough to jolt me back into the saddle. Besides, the “unfinished” pile is…piling up, so I need to find the motivation to get that back under control.
Can anyone tell me where I left my motivation? I seem to have misplaced it. Probably under one of the piles….
