Adventures in Alterations: High Waisted Skirt

Remember the Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent skirt that was a bit too big in the waist? I finally got her back from my tailor and got a chance to take some pictures!

Here it is before alterations:

The skirt sits on my low waist, and looks a little sloppy
The bit of extra fabric

Here is the finished product, after alterations:


Now the skirt sits at my natural waist and looks sharply styled. Here’s a look at the stitches my tailor added to nip in the waist. This skirt could also have been taken in along the zipper, eliminating the two stitches, but would have been more expensive.

Cost of Alteration: $15

A nice, easy fix for a beautiful skirt. Now I’m ready for warm weather!
