It's not ALWAYS perfect.. A Craft Fail

I have been trying desperately for YEARS to create a skirt... I know I know I know.. thousands of women out there make skirts EVERYDAY.. wearable skirts that are super cute and comfy.. but not this girl!
And of course there is Pinterest where I drool over hundreds of lovely patterns and hope that THIS one might just be wearable.. and then... EPIC FAIL happens instead.

Here is my latest fail...

supposed to be this:
a full size toddler skirt.. thought that I would practice and make one for the my neighbor's daughter.
My skirt!
Barely fits the American Girl doll.. (please excuse her toplessness.. someone cute and little lost most of her clothes)
and the seams are a total MESS!

Now don't get me wrong my sewing machine and I have created lots of lovely things together like
crowns

aprons
and fabric flowery stuff..
 but this is apparently a WHOLE nother level of sewing.. sigh.. someday.. I will make pretty wearable things..
p.s. This post was inspired by my bloggy friend Amy's hilarious  "Craft Fail"

  1. Haha ! I love it!! At least it's a highly functional doll skirt! Love the apron though! I like seeing fails, as opposed to always perfect masterpieces. We're only human :)
