Weight Loss

I have just finished a skirt and it is way too big!!! I measured and when I started it, it fitted. I know I have lost some weight but this skirt is has a lot of work in it and is going to take a LOT of unpicking to be able to rework it. And I need to start unpicking and reworking now, otherwise I may as well just get rid of it now otherwise it will sit in a corner for ever.

Lesson learned:
- DON'T lose weight!
- Measure all the weigh through
- Don't get too excited about finishing without checking it will fit first

Things I have learned over the last couple of days:

- when you rethread your overlocker don't cut the thread too short!
- measure, measure and measure again
- lining a skirt isn't as difficult as I thought it might be...perhaps I have done it incorrectly?!
- be patient...understand that unpicking is a way of learning!
