Navy, polka-dotted skirt, Side x Side (thrifted and altered by me). Navy tank, Merona. Khaki blazer, Charlotte Russe. Red bead necklace, Xhilaration. Red pumps, X Appeal.
This skirt is another thrifty find, from Valley Thrift on Reading Road. I hacked off almost six inches and trimmed it with eyelet lace. The lace was an attempt to cover up the wonky hem. I always seem to have trouble hemming a-line or circle skirts. The hems end up thick and wrinkly and don’t hang right. Any tips from sewers out there on how to deal with the excess fabric in the hemming of a flared garment?
Over the course of the day, I’ve come to think of this is as my “squaredance skirt.” All I need is a crinoline and I can join the group at the Wyoming Civic Center.
