This is another skirt refashion. I know, I know, not another one. But I really liked this skirt from the first moment I saw it, but it had issues.
So the waist band and the pleats had to go.
First I carefully removed the waistband. Luckily the zipper ended below the waist band so this refashion didn’t require any fiddling with the zipper because I hate trying to fix zippers. Then I removed the pleats from both the skirt and the lining and zigzagged the two raw edges together and trimmed off all the loose threads. I just turned the waistband and stitched it down.
The skirt fits perfectly now and baby belly has gone away. I love the colours and pattern of this pencil skirt, it is pure wool, fully lined, has pockets and best of all, it has pockets!
