The Skirt

Here is the skirt I made last week. It is very 50's, very house wife. and I love it. The fabric was incredible! I told you it was regularly $21 but on sale for $7. It is all embroidered and funky. It was meant to be a Miu Miu inspired skirt, but it looks a little too long and not so fun and outting-y. And yes that it my beautiful 30 year old Bernina sewing machine in the second picture. She is amazing. It is entirly metal, no plastic parts. Back to the skirt, I'm thinking of heming it to look like the second picture below. I want it a little shorter with more volume. Thinking about it. I'm wondering if the way it looks now is too long and frumpy, too grandma maybe.

  1. Oh, what a pretty skirt! The print is fantastic! I agree that it does look better at that shorter length but if you hem it, you'll lose that pretty scalloped pattern at the bottom that makes it so special. I think it's cute the way it is :)
