finding a maxi skirt when you are 6’3” is a hard task to accomplish. i decided to try and revamp a current dress that i had.. boy oh boy- did it not turn out as planned. here’s what i learned..
1) don’t pick a dress to cut up that doesn’t have very much stretch, unless you’re going to use elastic for the new waistband.
2) don’t attempt cutting up a dress that has a lot of stripes, unless you have a lot of patience to line everything up perfectly.
4) don’t freelance a new sewing project, unless you know what you’re doing
5) allow room for it to shrink in the dryer, otherwise it will turn out just as short as the skirts in the stores.
ehhh.. not so bad, but the waist band doesn’t function. unless i wear ten tank tops or gain a few pounds, it won’t stay on my hips. which would be a problem, especially at work. especially during a presentation when i stand up and there goes my skirt.
