I rather like serendipitous moments.
Of course, having read the title of this post, you have realized my bat skirt has failed to "skirt."
Sanae recently posted a sewing failure on her Instagram, and I just happened to have failed at bat skirt that day. Seeing her post on her fail made me really happy. My own "fail" made me even happier. Even with its unwearable flaws, I love that I tried. Acknowledging and celebrating the creative attempts that don't work out quite right is just as important as relishing those that do.
Pockets are trickier than I thought and the Mountie Hips became less Mountie but more awkward.
Bat Skirt attempt #1 didn't quite pan out, but I'm already planning on grabbing more of the same fabric for Bat Skirt attempt #2. Wish me luck!
