Another Alteration In My Closet

It looks innocent enough on the hanger...

But this skirt really wasn't me. Yet, like many things, it had been hanging in my closet for far too long. (Years.) I liked the look of the fabric and it had good lines, but it was the length that was just not good for me!

So, 7 cut off inches later I have this...

Much better! Casual with a tee and boots like above or oxfords and a striped blouse with pearls to go preppy....it's a basic yet versatile skirt in terms of when and where I can wear it. And I love that!

Which brings me to my next topic. In case you haven't noticed, I have a serious case of alterations. When I get bored with something, if I leave it hanging around long enough, eventually it falls victim to my sewing machine, (or a can of paint or electric drill...) and I've decided to chronicle these DIY adventures in my second blog Alterations and Modifications.
I just put up my first post in conjunction with this skirt. Come and indulge me in my addiction of half finished projects. Maybe I'll actually get them done. Thanks.
