Last week, my Ex husband bought me a floor length pencil skirt. (I have no idea why he bought me anything but
) There was a really cool dragon at the bottom on the back
. I couldn't see it
. Also, as a mom who chases kids all day, when would I wear a skirt I can't even walk in? It could be shortened about three inches, not by cuffing but by scrunching it up and using buttons???
So... I modified it. Or really, shredded it and pieced it back together.
After -It is tooooooo big! Oops!
But I did get a shot of my camera shy youngest in the background!
I had to use some really careful cutting to keep the snap closure pockets and to get the dragon and pockets where I wanted them. You can see that it is too big at the waist here. Oh well, I love it anyway. After I took these, I added darts to the back to make it smaller.
I added belt loops, using a seam I cut off the bottom because I liked the grey stitching.
I also put the button on straps that used to short it to mid-calf back on in random places.
