Larkspur Skirt

This one's actually a re-refash! I down-sized this skirt from a size 20 to a 10-ish a couple years ago.

I loss a little more weight after that, and now the skirt fits even better, BUT I still found myself never wearing it. The length was just all wrong.

So I cut off about 8 inches from the outer fabric and the lining, and I rehemmed them both. A quick press of the pleats, and we're all set!

I will definitely be wearing this more often now!

The shorter length definitely looks better on your than the longer one. Lovely!

I would have kept the length. But I'm much taller than you are ;)

I love what the shortening of the skirt does with the pleats. Good call! Very cute!
