Sewing, mending or altering?

For the past few days I have been mending my vintage dresses. I like a bit of hand sewing. You can't always use a machine! And then I found a few of my winter skirts. All of them are too big at the waist. So why not alter them? I didn't think it would be easy, but easy enough. WRONG! I'm still working on the first skirt (the others are even more of a challenge).
So what do I have to show for at this point?
A skirt with a waistband I have to hand sew on the wrong side.
A broken needle from my sewing machine (don't even ask!).
Unendless frustration with myself, the skirt and the sewing machine.

Long story all went wrong!
Better start on that waistband...
