I know…I could’ve at least ironed the skirt before we took a photo of it. But look, I had to change wardrobes in a kid friendly park. You can’t be picky when you’re dealing with indecent exposure laws–and by model, our State is a bit unclear on what is appropriate.
This skirt is the result from yet another Goodwill trip. The color of this skirt made me pick it up and the quality of the fabric made me actually pull out the dollah bills, with the plan of refashioning it to fit me-in shape and style of course.
Before I took in the side seams of the skirt, it was one large, pleated rectangle and was not flattering by any means. I thought about shaping this like a pencil skirt but quite honestly, where do I wear these cute pencil skirts I have? The grocery store. So, I chose to shape this for everyday wear, and I love it so much more for it’s versatility in my “stay-at-home” life.
And lastly, I shortened the length of the skirt in which, I think, any schoolmarm would approve.
If you have been wanting to resize/refashion clothing then thrifting is the best way to practice. This skirt was $2.50 so it takes the fear out of screwing it up. “…How long before you screw it up, and how many times do I have to tell you, to hurry up” –Hey Hey, name that little ditty or artist. I’ll be singing this all day now.
