My uncle bought me this skirt from bebe a while ago (which means that it was expensive!!) but it was totally not my style:



In my hand you can see that there are some little ties. There were 3 or 4 sets of ties up the sides of the skirt because the top layer of the skirt was not sewn up at the sides. I think it made my legs look really short.

So I decided to fix it up..why own an expensive skirt that you'll never wear? I unstitched the bottom panel from the bottom row of lace, took off the side ties and sewed up the sides. Then I rehemmed the slip so that it would  be shorter than the top layer (duh). I'm quite pleased with the result!

I don't seem to be the same today as I was yesterday.

You did a great job on this Smiley

(I sort of liked the style the first time, but your way is so much more flattering for you!)

I think it's a thousand times better! Great job! It's great that you can recycle things you won't ever wear to such a stylish skirt.

It's really cute, and I have to say, your face in the before picture is totally priceless.  Hehehe.

In my family, we're totally cool with being like "hey, not my style, can I return it and get something I like?", so in your situation I totally would've done that and gotten lots of money to go thrifting with.  Wink  That said, I know a lot of people's families aren't like that, so yay for making an awesome skirt  you'll wear out of an expensive one you didn't like.  ^_^
