Taking Off Some Length
I found this skirt:
My professional photographer got me mid stride.
And mid turn. I gave up and took it off. Here it is on the table.
It was too long, the waistband had some weird fake tie thing on it and the elastic was a quarter inch wide. Weird.
I chopped off the top.
I then folded it over and sewed it to make a new casing for the elastic.
Leave a space to thread your elastic through.
Measure out your elastic and thread it through.
Sew the elastic together, sew up your "hole" and wear it! It's now a great length! I'd try it on an show you a pic but my photographer had to go to bed. Maybe next time. . .
If I do it again:
I would sew the elastic right to the fabric instead of making a casing.
