Dance skirt

So... a while ago I lost my practice shoes and one of my dance skirts somewhere on campus. It made me terribly sad, but at least I had an extra dance skirt. However, this dance skirt has always felt too small, and I'm already a short-ish standard dancer, so I don't need a skirt that makes me look stubby...


I've been wanting to just make a new one (because those skirts are EXPENSIVE!) by simply copying the pattern of my skirt and making it longer, but the fabric too is expensive! And I couldn't find some thick enough. So I thinks to myself: how about adding fabric to the bottom?

(hehe do you like the purple toenails? :) I was worried it would look too tacky/cheap fix-ish, but since the new fabric is a bit shinier it actually just looks like a wide ribbon-type band around the bottom. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, and the best part is I am no longer a stubby dancer!

Ok, who am I kidding, I'm still short, but the extra inches will do wonders for my dance lines hopefully!
