Failure!

I made this skirt last weekend. I based it off of my favorite skirt pattern, Simplicity 2451, which I thought I could turn into a midi-length mullet skirt. I think the idea might have been good, but I used the wrong fabric (at least it was thrifted) and ignored what I knew about making circle/half-circle skirts and ended up with something I don’t really want to wear.
Something else I didn’t consider; you need a nice seam in the back of the skirt because it’s visible! I overlocked the raw edges of my fabric but I still think it looks a little goofy.
Next, I’m going to cut off the mullet and see if I can’t make this skirt wearable enough for me or somebody else. Wish me luck!

  1. I'd really like to try making a mullet skirt out of another fabric so I'm going to store your idea away! Awesome!

  2. Haha! Sometimes I can't handle knowing that I'm wearing something that I could have done properly… I'm neurotic like that.

  3. Ahh, tough times. It was a noble venture! The colour is gorgeous, I really hope you can get it into wearable shape. Thanks so much for your comment on the 'Part of the Process' guest post BTW. I'm so pleased that it inspired youxxx
