I thrifted this skirt for 5.00 and it was a bit big but I completely loved the pattern. I took it in so it would fit my waist and here is where the tutorial begins...
Try on your skirt and mark with a pin where you want your highest part to land. Once your skirt is off measure an inch or so lower than your pin and cut strait in. You will be creating a sort of stretched out "S" shape. Your last cut should go 1-3 inches past your side seam.
For my skirt I tried a double "S" shape for fun.
Hemming the skirt gets a little tricky. I did a basic rolled hem where you iron up a half inch fold then fold it over again and iron. That way all of your edges are folded in and you won't get any exposed edge fraying.
Hemming is tricky because the fabric curves. Take the curvy parts one inch and a time and use a spray bottle with water on it to keep your hem nice and crisp.
After that run the sewing machine along the bottom with thread that matches the skirt...
and you are done!

I literally wore this skirt 3 days in a row. Something about it makes me feel so feminine and free.
Hope you are having a lovely day!
