I found this skirt while thrifting a few weeks ago. I snagged it for the color, pockets, and bias cut. However, the below-the-knee length was terribly dowdy. I cut off six inches and stitched ball trim to the hem. I hand-stiched the trim backstage during the last two performances of Noir Suspicions. I mentioned that the skirt was apparently vintage and one of my castmates likened it to the dirndl skirts that were popular in the 70’s. Perhaps it is from that era.
I dressed in this outfit for a night at the movies with Mike. Unfortunately, by the time we needed to leave for the 9:55 p.m. showing, I was too sleepy, so this outfit never left the house. Now I can’t submit it to Wardrobe Remix. (One of the rules is that you must wear your outfit somewhere besides your own domicile. I suppose the intent is to keep the pool “street style.”) I guess I’ll just have to wear it again.
