Oh please oh please

So...I bought this piece of leather off Ebay:

(after the obligatory "am I crazy??!" email to my sister) With dreams of it becoming a sweet pencil skirt with a wide, contrast color waistband. But here's the thing. I am not at all sure there is enough of it! And I can't tell currently because all the patterns we have are in a million (ok, like 6) pieces and none of them are quite right.


It's off to the fabric store for me to find a pencil skirt pattern with the skirt part in 3 pieces, so I can lay it out and find out once and for all if I have enough fabric. It's like when you force a boy to say he just really doesn't like you anymore when he is breaking up with you instead of letting him get away with the whole "it's not you it's me" thing. Right? Wait, nobody else emotionally self-mutilates like that? How strange.

Anyway. I really hope I have enough of this amazingly soft, quirky leather. Oh please, oh please.

P.S. Even if I do have enough, we may have a problem because I CAN NOT seem to sew a straight line since I got home from my mission. What's with that?

  1. well at least you could sew a strait line at some point.. that means you CAN do it again. and if you weren't on the G team I'd say make a fabulous MINI!!! darn it..
