This is a skirt I was handed down by my Mum, I loved the pretty detail on it but not the length, plus the waist was about 2 inches too small.
I shortened it from the top to retain the detail, gathered the waist back up to fit, and recut a new waistband.
The button was one of those plain old white ones, so I added a vintage crystal one, and swapped the standard zip for an invisible zip.
Overall I am pretty happy with it, but it does require a nude petticoat because the fabric is quite transparent!
A couple more pictures, and more info over at my site, UtBwB.
