Remember that too big skirt from a while back that I bought at Goodwill?
So sweet of ZouZou to try to make the mirror presentable.
I wanted to tighten the waistband and shorten the length without taking away the fullness of the skirt. Sooo.....I cut it shorter at the waist instead of at the hem which I do not at all recommend you do unless (A) you have the tiniest derriere in creation, or (B) you want to re-do the zipper.
|I used another skirt to determine waistband size.|
Since I fall under the A category, I was able to take off a couple of inches and shorten the zipper without much fuss. Well, actually there was a lot of fuss and a wee bit of hair pulling, but let's just keep that between you and me, ey? In my defense, I had a teething toddler at my heels and Good Friday marked the beginning of two weeks of terrible, epic, no-good sickness in my house. Time was of the essence! Also, the outer layer had a million seams and the lining only had two seams per piece. Gosh I hate math.
|Poor sick babies.|
Anywho, it all worked out in the end and the likelihood of anyone taking a ruler to my seams is not great, right?
Here it is with a green tee from Old Navy. On Easter I wore a pink cardigan sweater from Ann Taylor to dress it up a bit. My camera thinks it's glows with femininity :o).
Have a great day ya'll!
