I was recently given a corduroy skirt! I love corduroy, but alas, this skirt was just too short for me! (with knobbly knees & chicken legs like mine, you really don’t want to be showing too much!)
|Apologies for the ‘blue’ tinge (had the wrong white balance selected on my camera phone! Doh!)|
So I thought I’d have a go a trying to lengthen the skirt by adding a bit of something onto the bottom of it.
I dug out some old wool trousers I’d been keeping for recycling, cut up one of the legs and hey presto!
The trim you see there was a belt off one of the kids’ old skirts or trousers which nicely hides the unseemly white line you get when you let down a hem!
I’m really pleased with how this skirt turned out.
And it goes perfectly with my new 99p Italian Leather shoes which I picked up in Barnardos at the weekend! Bargain!
