Hi all! First of all, Thanks for looking!
Well have you ever found some item that had such
potential, so you bought it and start altering it... and find the simplest alteration makes it look so much better? Well that's essentially what happened here.
This skirt is a wrap (it actually overlaps in the back so you cant see it) and it has deep pockets and with 2 pleats right next to them. It's made of a mid-weight cotton and I love the pattern on it- somewhere between safari-print and those old blue/white porcelain plates I like. Well, it Also used to be mid-calf length and super frumpy looking.
My original intent was to shorten it and reconstruct it into a basic a-line-esque wrap but upon shortening it, (about a food mind,) I decided I liked it's poofiness and got a petticoat (the white skirt you see at the bottom) to make sure my point wasn't missed.
Now- depending on where you wrap it on your waist- it's about knee length, above the knee if you wear it as a high-waisted skirt as you see here.
That's enough talking: here we are!
