I am stuck. I made this skirt out of a goodwill skirt, my old jeans and some denim fabric (which was stretchy and hard to work with Sad). So I have this right now. I think it's too plain and I want to add another layer to it. The length now is weird. Do you think it would be best to add one more layer of the light denim? Would the weight of that denim straighten out the bottom layer I have there now? It wrinkled and doesn't look very good. Sad I got suggestions from another thread about adding some lace, what you do think?

I'm wearing it a bit off center (and I have a shirt on, don't worry! I just lifted it Wink)

I agree about the lace, but not like a little, like a good 6-8 inches of lace all around the bottom!

I like your skirt! You could add lace or you could let the edges fray, I prefer the fray but I'm not a big lacey girl. Your preference is what matters. I think it would look good no matter what!

back lace along each seam (except the sides) would look really awesome


glitter it, no seriously, just add glue and glitter, no one will notice
