First, thank you for clicking on this thread, even if you don't have any advice to share.
Okay. Here's the problem:
I went to the thrift store today (buck a bag all week.. woohoo!) and I found two skirts that I really liked the fabric of. The first one is really, really adorable, but the waist is WAY too small for me. It's a bit too long for my liking, but I can't cut the top off because of the zipper. Or can I? I don't know too much about zippers. Should I just put two strips of fabric into the sides? And if that's the best idea, does anyone know how to do that or a link I could go to that would tell me? I've never done it, so I need some starting advice.
The second skirt is WAY too big for me in all directions. What's the best way to make it smaller? It's in an A-line design, so should I just measure in, still keeping the A-line and waistband, and cut and sew from there? Or does anyone have any better ideas??
I know I probably sound completely stupid, but I'm a bit of a new sewer. Any help would be so appreciated.
I will forever call you sewing goddess if you can help me!
