Yea…it’s pretty bad….
….at least it cost me less that $5.
Here’s the story:
I saw this cool lampshade on Anthropologie awhile back and I thought hey—that would make a great skirt. (Little did I know.)
The next day I ran to the store and bought two cheap T-shirts (total cost $2.12) and got to work.
If horizontal ruffle skirts could be made from T-shirts then why not vertical ruffle skirts? (It all seemed so logical.)
I cut, I ruffled, I cut and ruffled some more and then I sewed and sewed. Then I put Grace and the skirt into the mini van and raced off to meet Elizabeth to take some photos.
Shortly we arrived at our destination where the skirt went on and my smile came off.
WHAT WAS THIS HIDEOUS THING THAT I HAD MADE!!!???!!!
And looking at the picture now I don’t really know what is actually the worst part…the skirt with all it’s heinous splendor or the saggy baggy white tights that don’t match or the T-shirt of mine that poor Grace is wearing on top of her real shirt because that afternoon was freezing. It’s all too horrible for words.
1 ugly skirt + 1 enormous T-shirt + wrinkly tights = The total toddler outfit of shame
The only good thing I can say is that this time my craft fail only set me back $2.12 AND that next time I get a brilliant idea to make Gracie an article of clothing based on items found in housewares I’m going to remember the lampshade skirt of doom and just save my two dollars.
