Why do I always find the cutest bottoms at thrift stores that are shaped like boxes??? I mean, shouldn't women's clothes be shaped for women's hips?
|So much extra space in the back!|
|Fits so much better with a few pins!|
I measured about an inch out from the tag to make the darts so that I knew they where equally spaced. I made the top/thickest part of the dart about a quarter inch wide and took the dart all the way down to the lower yoke of the skirt. (You may notice the first dart I made, on the left, which was too short and made my butt look like a box. I fixed that by making the dart a little longer.)
|Finished skirt with darts.|
|Lovely new fall ensemble.|
|Darts look original!|
|Great new addition to my work wardrobe.|
