All right, I need some help, guys. I’ve been working on a pencil skirt from Gertie’s book for my Monthly Stitch project (my new skill for the month is inserting a lapped zipper). I love this skirt (I finished it over the weekend), but I have one problem: somewhere along the way, I nicked a tiny hole in the front center of the skirt about 6″ from the bottom of the hem. I need some help on how to fix this, because I can’t stomach the idea of tossing this project.
I have two ideas on how to fix this so far:
- Cut the length off and make a shorter skirt. Doable, but not quite what I’m going for.
- Use a contrasting fabric below the nick. I have some black fabric that might be a possibility.
What are your thoughts?
Gah, I hate making stupid mistakes. Any other suggestions are welcome.
P.S. Just a heads-up, but I’ll likely be changing the name of this blog within the next few weeks. I’m just waiting on a few things to go through before I make the switch.
