|The skirt swamping my dress form|
This skirt came from a friend of my Mum's. It was almost ankle length, about a size 22, and elasticised in back waistband.
I unpicked the side seams and kept the front section as is, then measured the back section on my dress form sewed it back together and placed a new waistband in, no elastic needed!
I then hemmed it to just below the knee, a very flattering length.
I wore it today to uni, it's so comfortable, I will have to find more tops to match with it.
The buttons are mother of pearl, expect the bottom two which are odd. I will replace them, and also sew another button hole; they stop about three inches above the hem, and the flapping was annoying me a little today.
So a lovely rayon skirt for free in a lovely colour that I would not have worn otherwise.
