The last batch of clothes I took to the tailor also included this skirt:
This skirt always felt a little bulky, and since the waist fits well I blamed it on the length. Now, I probably could have very easily ripped off the bottom 2 tiers all by myself and charged myself nothing. But instead I added it to the pile of clothes I handed off to the tailor. At least it's done. If I decided to DIY it "Alter that skirt!" would still be on the top of my "to do" list, I'm sure.
I think it's much better now:
I really could have made that cut by myself. Oh well... maybe next time!!
