How to Downsize a Skirt by Kristina

Thursday, November 08, 2012

The most frustrating thing about shopping at Goodwill or the clearance section of your favorite store is finding the perfect item in the wrong size (and it's inevitable the only one left, too!). Skirts that are too large are a super easy three-step fix, even if the item is several sizes too big. The trick to simplify this or any re-sizing project is to mark the piece while inside out, which makes the end result a lot more accurate.
