This is why you should ALWAYS read the directions…

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a great “OH SHIT”
That started yesterday afternoon
while sewing I did sit.

The task was to test this skirt pattern,
would be easy I was sure.
Four skirt panels set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

The cutting started getting rough,
The panels seemed so big,
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The teens skirt would be lost, the teens skirt would be lost.

I made a big mistake that day,
would make me feel quite dumb,
what would my teacher say,
my brain is quite numb

I slaved on the skirt all afternoon,
Not a single break for tea,
Like Robinson Crusoe,
As primitive as can be.

So join us here tomorrow afternoon my friends,
You’re sure to get a kick,
From four skirt panels, and a huge waist…
When I realized “OH SHIT”
