|The original long skirt|
So all I did was measure about an inch from the elastic waist and cut. Then I held up the rest of the skirt and guessed where I'd want it to fall and measured from the hem to my waist. It was 23" on me. So I measured 23" from the hem all the way around the skirt and cut.
|Cut the skirt into 3 sections.|
Next, just sew along the raw edge. I left about a 3/4" of edge when I sewed it. Once it's sewed go ahead and iron it if it needs it. I ironed mine a little to get the edges to all point down. I also trimmed the edges a little too because they were a bit big in some spots.
|As I sewed I followed along the white stitching and kept that same distance away from it to make sure I was sewing straight.|
|This is what the skirt looks like finished inside-out|
And that's all there is to it!! So easy, so fast! And I think it looks so much better on me. :) How have you adjusted clothes to fit you better?
I just added this to a link party on VMG206 and Share your Creativity if you'd like to check it out.
