3 Inches Shorter

There was a moving sale in my neighborhood done by a family whom I’ve known since elementary school. There was a lot of vintage fabrics and clothes. The woman priced things based on the prices she could get on Ebay, so they were more expensive than normal garage sale prices. This skirt was 2 dollars and in need of alterations. I also wanted to get a large chunk of rose-colored fabric. But it was 40 dollars. No way. Back to the skirt; I sewed on a button and hemmed it 3 inches and VIOLA!This is now my favorite skirt ever. It can look vintage, it can look modern, it can look formal, it can look casual. No matter what though, it’s always comfortable. And at the end of the day the family came and gave me the chunk of fabric for free because it hadn’t sold. I’ve got very exciting plans for it. Can you say, another skirt?
