I started off with this hand-me -down denim skirtt that was too big. The first thing i did was add some embroidery. I used a blue bird deisgn from emblibrary, but had fun with the colours. I might use variagated next time, as the 4 colour design allows for a bit of fun!
Anyhow, here is the skirt after the design!
Then I took in the skirt, by first removing the zip on the side, in order to keep the basic design of the skirt. I took it in on both sides. I ended up having to insert a longer zip so i could get it on more easily.
