I love a flowy-long skirt. Always have. I love that they're back in style.
I set out with some super cute knit fabric to make me one, and got side-tracked by this dress.
What was wrong with this dress, you ask? Well the reason it had been sitting in a box for fifteen years was because of an accidental sharpie mark right in front at the waistline. It was also a little short--it hit my shins right at the point to make them seem bigger. And I didn't have the slender stomach to wear it anymore. But I never threw it out because it was such a comfortable dress and I loved it.
You can see where I cut it off. I figured the sharpie part wouldn't show past the folded-over waistband.
I was going to cut more off to make a waistband, but then I tried it on and realized that it was already tailored to sit on my hips. So I just folded it down until it was exactly the length I wanted.
This is excellent, because some of my shoes are taller than others, and I can lengthen or shorten the skirt accordingly. Accidental genius.
PS. I'm Baa-ack!
