LINKUPWITHLISA #15 - DIY Skirt Hack



Take this look from day to night with a pair of sexy chic sandals.



I refashioned this skirt because it was much too long and too tight to walk in. First I tried the skirt on and cut the slit. I then folded a small seam and sewed it with a straight stitch.


Next I cut off the old elastic waistband and tried the skirt on inside-out. 



I created a new waistband and trimmed it to fit my waist. 


I then attached the new waistband using a straight stitch and reinforced it with a zigzag stitch.


I decided to wear my skirt with the slit on the side instead of the back because my blazer covered the seams. The back slit works better wearing tights :-)

  5. I understand why you would shorten the skirt and add a slit…those long, narrow skirts are so hard to walk in. Such a lovely outfit!
