As I've said before, a nice even lined pattern really makes cutting length easy! I just found the spot on my legs where I wanted it to hit and marked it. Then I went about 1/2 inch down to allow for the hem.
Here is the amount I removed, not a ton, but enough to update it:
Then it was time for hemming! I just folded and pinned along the pattern line.
I once again used the clear thread for this thick multi-colored fabric.
If you recall from the first March Plaidness, I refashioned a top to go with it. You know, this one:
I figured, why not use the same top with this second iteration.
Paired with my pointy black pumps, it was a great outfit for the first 70+ degree day of 2016 in Portland!
By the way, see that pocket I am using? It is actually a faux-pocket. I've never seen this before, but it is really just an opening where it buttons up, so it appears to match the actual pocket on the other side. When I stick my hand in the "pocket," I am actually touching my lower stomach. So weird!!
May your day be filled with sunshine and purposeful pockets!
