Click below for before and after pictures!I had to take in the waist and sides. Here is a before pic of it sitting on my low waist. At first, I thought I could get away with it and attempted to wear it to work and it just did NOT look right. I couldn't tuck anything in and the back of the skirt looked horrid. The skirt- un-altered hangs way too low and looks very strange. It needs to sit were my natural waist is - up where my belly button is.
Here you can see how large the waist really is when it sits up where it should....just terribly large. It needed to come in at least 2 inches.
I was afraid with the pockets and draping detail and this skirt being 100% silk, that by altering it- it would ruin but my tailor is fantastic so I knew he would make it perfect.
By tailoring this skirt to sit on my natural waist, it brings up the hemline by a couple of inches which I think looks much better.The waist is snug but enough room to eat a big meal and still be able to breathe comfortably (which is important).
Overall, I am happy with the alterations! It fits so much better and definitely worth the $9.88 plus alteration costs! I have this same skirt in navy blue which I am sure will be making it's appearance soon:) Thoughts on this skirt? Did my tailor do a good job?
