Skirt smirt...

Yes, I am still talking about that dang skirt. I finally sat down this evening and pulled everything out. I looked at the tutorial that goes with the skirt. Let me first say...I am a visual person. I learn by SEEING something. This tutorial comes with photos. EXCEPT....she does not use the cutting layout that I need for this skirt and it does not make a lick of sense to me. I'm going to cry. Once I get the fabric cut out....I'm home free. Well...then there is the elastic. But heck...I can't even get to the point where I can cut the dang pattern out of the fabric.

Margie...if you are reading this. Can I email you the snapshot of the cutting layout and YOU tell me what I am suppose to do? I emailed the lady who did the tutorial and she is suppose to email me back with "help", but I can't wait forever. Maybe K can wear it NEXT Halloween. DANG IT! I am tempted to go to Joann's tomorrow with my fabric and my pattern and BEG someone to explain to me in remedial terms what the freaking layout means.

I. Am. A. Loser.

Blog ya later. Maybe. If this skirt doesn't do me in before I leave for vacation.

Send me a pic and I will do my best. No promises, though. I have to read patterns several times before I get it.
