I snagged this skirt at Buffalo Exchange a while ago. I love the fluffiness and the neutral ombre-ish silk, but I broke one of my own shopping rules: Never buy something that doesn't fit perfectly. Oops.
Umm...? Time for a quick & dirty alteration!
Before: Ginormous--this would barely sit around my hips if I didn't take in the waist! I think I'll be taking in about 7 inches. With a pinch here, & a pinch there...
Sew the waistband closed at each pinch...
Button-up, Target via Buffalo Exchange
Belt, H&M via clothes swap
Skirt, Buffalo Exchange
Flats, Urban Outfitters
And Lola, our giant Lab!
Would a professional take in the waistband this way? Absolutely not. But this took me less than 15 minutes to get from "What was I thinking??" to Totally Wearable. Works for me!
