So I bought myself this skirt off ebay. It was a reputable brand I'd worn before so I wasn't too worried about sizing but it arrived yesterday and as soon as I tried it on it become apparent that something is ... amiss ... about it.
It has this cute edging on it and is like a wrap style but with a waistband which results in a rather large opening but I'm not worried about that, as it's easy to fix. It's the entire shape of the skirt ... it's almost like there is more material on one side than the other, meaning one side sits flat and the other one hangs all drapey weirdness. I really love the material and the edging and so I'd love to save it ... but I'm not really sure what to do with it. When I lay it flat it seems that the hemline is indeed not straight and seems to curve downwards towards the back so perhaps that is part of the problem. I feel I need to somehow reduce the actual amount of material in the skirt overall (not lengthwise but so it sits right) and possibly make the hemline straight.
Any ideas? I have a sewing machine!
Here are the pictures so you can see what I mean ... I am standing straight so any uneveness is because of the skirt itself. Also I posted a closeup of the waistband (with more cute little pleated edges).
