A while ago I bought a plaid wool (?) skirt at a favorite consignment store on Newbury St. I thought it had potential.
This morning I cut about six inches off the length of it and hemmed it, and promptly decided to wear it for the day.
I'm wondering when it might be from. Is it 70's? (It looks a lot like the second skirt here, from the 70's...)
What do you think?
Actually, I really like it.
But I have plans to further improve it -- it has a lot of gathers at the waistline and I'm thinking that by making the waistband slightly bigger and having it fall a bit lower on my waist (it's currently very high-waisted) I would have more material to spread the gathers over. We'll see.
[I hope it's not some legitimate vintage piece that I'm ruining with my hack-job sewing.]
I think it will be great to wear in the fall.
