I’m sorely tempted to trace and duplicate it…
Barely were these words typed up, then THIS happened to my beloved skirt as featured in yesterday’s OWOP post.
I’d decided my outfit was suitable for cycling to work in. As I stopped at a junction and stepped off the pedals, my hem caught on the back of the seat. I was stuck! Quite literally. My toes barely reached the tarmac, my pubic bone ground into the seat… (Yeah, ouch.) I thought I was going to have to tip myself over and fall to the ground in order to free myself.
Then a lovely lady walked past and I yelped for help. ‘Can you get my skirt off the back of the seat?’ She helped me rearrange my outfit, but the damage had been done. My skirt had torn.
I think I can mend this with the darning function on my beloved Bernina.
I am VERY impressed that the button stayed in place.
I am VERY impressed that the button hole just about stood the test.
Has this type of thing happened to anyone else? I think I may be drafting a new skirt sooner than I anticipated. This may be a second summer devoted to the search for a perfect cycling skirt.
