I cut it to a length of 21" and sewed a strip of 2" crocheted lace to the bottom. (I actually cut the top off and used the bottom half of the skirt so that it would have more fullness. Then I just made it into an elastic waistband.) I finished it off with a doily. I like it a lot better now. I think that paired with an ivory blouse un-tucked, a thick brown belt high on the waist, and some chunky brown sandals that this outfit might just rock a summer feel. I am going to try it out.

I have had this plaid skirt for about 7 years. Even though it is light weight it has sort of a winter feel to me. I haven't warn it for months,...possibly even years,...so I thought I would see if I could lighten it up a bit.
