Pencilled Velvet


I bought this pencil skirt a while ago from a charity shop in Reading, I fell in love with the colour and although I knew I'd never wear it as it was who can say no to another bodycon skirt right? So last weekend I finally got round to customising it and for once I didn't completely ruin it/ cut it too short :)

I used the slit at the back to judge what length to make it (a little longer than I wanted it) and marked on where to cut, I then cut all the way around and pinned it up. Originally I planned to use hemming web to do this but it was actually just as easy to put a few stitches in- I tried to make sure minimal stitching was visible on the outside. 

I can't wait to wear it out properly, here's the finished result:

  2. I ALWAYS cut things to short when I'm trying to fix them. This then turns into a how-to-make-it-not-that-slutty diy. So good job on this, it looks perfect, and the color of that velvet is amazing!
