Recently I was given this skirt. I loved the pattern, but hated the length. I am not a fan of ankle length anything, maxi skirts or dresses included.
So. I gave it the chop!
First, I put the skirt on and used a tape to measure the length I wanted. Then I laid it flat and marked the skirt all the way across at that length.
Remember, these are basic sewing skills – literally just sewing a straight stitch using a machine. I always try to keep simple alterations like this in mind while I’m shopping or when I’m given hand-me-downs because it can turn a garment I’m not crazy about into something I can’t wait to wear.
See you later for Photo Friday!
