Fix a slit thats too high = Wear your favortite skirt

My favorite skirt and my favorite man.
Ever get a fabulous skirt and the slit is a bit to high?  You desperately want to wear the skirt with out showing too much leg but if you sew up the slit you will end up taking baby steps in order to walk. 
So here is the answer!!!!
The Slit Insert
1. Start with measuring your slit top to bottom and side to side.

2. Fold a piece of fabric over once and cut into a triangle shape on the fold to match the measurements you took. Cut your triangle a bit wider so you have more "give" when you walk.


3. Pin the edges of  your fabric.


4. With a sewing machine or by hand sew up the raw sides of your triangle.
(You don't have to do this part, I just wanted a more solid piece of materiel to work with.)

5. Tack it down in a few spots. (I just did this by hand at the top, bottom, and middle sides of the triangle.)



6. Wear your favorite skirt!!!

  20. I'm an experienced seamstress, but put away all my sewing equipment years ago. Your blog has inspired me to drag it all out again! I actually got a moo moo (sp?) for Christmas (I was horrified!). The fabric, however, is GORGEOUS!!! I bought the Cynthia Rowley pattern I saw on your blog, and will be giving it a serious makeover. Thanks for sharing!

  29. Thanks for the useful tips. I dont' have a sewing machine so I'll just skip that part. However, you just said to "tack down" the triangle within the slit. Did you simply use fabric glue? If so, did that last?

    This was awhile ago, but if anyone is wondering, usually it means a couple basting stitches.
