That's a long skirt...
I found this breezy summer skirt at a thrift store for $3.99. It was half price day on all clothing, so I grabbed it and a few other skirts to play around with. It actually fit me with no alterations needed. WHOA, right? I wore is a few times, but felt frumpy and unhappy with it. The skirt was made with three tiers, so I decided to remove the bottom tier, thinking that would be a good length. It was easy to cut apart, but I was surprised at the remaining skirt portion; it was quite a bit shorter than I intended. Whoops….
I had an old tablecloth with a gorgeous crocheted trim in my stash . The table cloth wasn’t something that I wanted to ever use, but the trim is amazing. I detached the trim from the tablecloth while watching some TV and then added it to the bottom of my summer skirt. I love that it gave me a bit of length to the skirt and TONS of pretty feminine detail to this $1.99 skirt.
Now, the bottom of that skirt…… It’s already hemmed and perfect for adding onto something……
