Mini-Skirt to Modest Skirt

Friday, August 26, 2011
I have this great skirt that I absolutely love… this mini skirt from Forever 21. Doesn’t it look itty bitty on the model??

Ever since I saw Sydney in her striped skirt, I knew I had to get my hands on one! And I did…for $7.

BAM!! Scary face. And awkward puckering. And whoa! It’s longer than the one on the model?

What the what???

The skirt has a fold-over waistband which the model folded over and I didn’t. Modesty problem solved! I also got my skirt a couple sizes bigger so it would reach my knees but there was all that puckering business! I didn’t ask for this!!!! So I took matters into my domesticated hands.

I made my husband pin the sides to get it nice and tight. I figured since it was made of jersey it would just stretch out anyway. And it does…until I wash it and dry it again. It’s a sick cycle.

Lesson? A lot of stores out there have some tiny skirts. Check to see if they have a fold-over waistband but don’t fold it over! Get it in a couple sizes bigger and take the sides in to make it fit your hot bod. Now go rock the mini skirt with a bit more modesty!

  1. You are too cute. This is a great idea. Any recommendations of sewing machines?

  2. I always see these striped skirts or mini pencils and I'm always sad that they're too short.This is brilliant! Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is such a good idea! I can't wear super mini skirts. I'll have to try this out!

  5. I hate how a lot of the skirts at F21 are so short - there is no way you can wear it like the models do without showing everyone too much. I'll have to keep the waistband tip in mind the next time I'm there :)

  6. Great idea, but isn't the skirt still a bit too tight?  Which would mean it's still not so modest. 

  7. Thanks for your comment, Heidi! Modesty is subjective and different for everyone, don't you think?

  8. That skirt is super cute! And now you can comfortably sit down with out having to twist your body into any weird positions haha.

  9. Not really. I think parading around in a skirt that is skin tight because you 'took in the sides to show off your hot bod' is universally NOT MODEST. Can you picture Jesus saying the phrase 'show off your hot bod?' ummm... No. I'm so glad I'm not a mormon. This blog just highlights the hypocrisy of this religion.

    Your welcome for my comment.

  10. I love how you've censored (aka deleted) my comment. Appears I hit a nerve. Hard to respect a blogger who can't handle when ppl don't blindly worship then. Again. Rediculous.

  11. Not really subjective. Sorry, too tight is immodest, just like it says in the BYU honor code. And especially with pencil skirts. When you sit down they slide wayyy far up your thigh.
