Another goodwill find! I thought this skirt would be perfect for winter since it’s thick, but the length wasn’t doing anything for me.
I marked where I wanted to cut it and chopped it off. I then pinned it up about 3/4 of an inch and stitched down a new hem.
Since we just moved back to Illinois, I have no idea where my iron went, so I used the next best thing: a straightener!
The old hem on the bottom piece was quite large, so I picked it apart, “ironed” it to remove the fold line, then cut it in half.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of the next part, but I simply stitched the ends together, ran the top through the machine using the longest straight stitch, then gathered it by pulling on the bottom thread. I stitched it to the bottom of the skirt and voila! An up-to-date skirt for winter.
