Some clothes just can't help it...they're awkward, nerdy, and sometimes just too big.
This skirt was given to me by my sister and I originally intended on just using the fabric for pouches but since I'm desperate for some new skirts... I kept it and made it a whole lot better.
The skirt was actually extremely well made, I couldn't help but admire the craftsmanship before I took it apart.
But as you can see from the before pictures, this skirt wasn't going to be worn anywhere no matter how well it was made.
So I took apart the seams and cut off the excess fabric from the top.
Having a long zipper in the middle front of a skirt just doesn't look flattering on me. So I carefully removed the zipper and opened the seam in the middle back where I'd move it to.
pinned the zipper in place and the spot for two new darts
I also realized that having a seam go straight down the middle front would be kind of boring. So I decided to have the seam off a little more on one side and go down in a slight angle.
and like that the skirt was no longer just a pile of fabric!
So now I have one less skirt to buy!
