What’s a girl to do when she’s waiting for more lives in Candy Crush Saga? Work on a long-delayed project, such as shortening a full-length skirt. I think I wore the full-length skirt a couple of times during the holidays, but the last time I tried it on, it was a smidge too tight in the waist area.
As the skirt was laying in the Goodwill pile, I took another glance at it and decided I could save it. I cut off the top part of the skirt that included the zipper and then created a new casing on the bottom of the now-shortened skirt with the original hem intact.
After snaking elastic through the new casing, I carefully cut off the waistband area from the top of the old skirt to create fake drawstrings. Now, I have another cute skirt for the cooler seasons.
