Today’s make is a first for me. It had to happen sometime and this, it seems, is it; it’s a Deer and Doe pattern that I don’t love.
I don’t even like it very much.
I just really, really don’t like them on me.
This is the skirt version of the Deer and Doe Goji pattern and to make it even worse, I made it up in some bloody gorgeous palm print crepe from Stoff & Stil, confident in Deer and Doe’s ability to take me stylishly out of my comfort zone and have me look great.
But let’s be honest; this style is doing absolutely nothing for me. It’s hiding what waist I do have and I basically feel like a big, fat frump.
Ah, Deer and Doe. Never fear, I still love you. But I don’t think I’ll be making the shorts any time soon. Which is a shame, because this was a very satisfying sew.
It just looks awful!
What makes have you thrown into the “learnt from that, never making it again” pile?
