Goth Mary Poppins' Creative Goth Summer Weeks: 3rd task

The third task'll be to tell about a DIY fail, (that you perhaps never really got over), what you've learnt from it. Just try to let it go. :)

I am making this a bit early, but I have work this evening and can't be on the computer much longer.

My biggest DIY fail was 2005 when I decided to make a beautiful green velvet skirt with a huge hem. I haven't got it anymore and have no photos so here is a scruffy pic.
It was a circle made of 8 parts and it was other way fine but when I measured the waist I divided it by four not eight (so that I would cut the 8 parts of the fabric). Therefore the waist was twice my size and I was too lazy to try to make it smaller and the sewing machine was allready then having it's last days and was making it really hard to sew.

I guess I'm getting over it, the loss of money and time.  ^_^


  1. At least you've tried! (Honestly.)

    Thank you for posting, even when in a hurry! ^^

    1. Yeah, but it was still pretty dumb, not knowing what is the difference between 4 and 8. :D
