Quick skirt refashion - adding length.

I need skirts to wear to work.  I am 5'9" tall and its very hard to find pants to fit me.  I won't go into details.

This skirt was the exact wrong length.  Since I am no longer young, just cutting off some length and making it into a cute above the knee was not an option.  So I used my 50% off coupon and bought some dark blue blanket binding. 


Quick and easy, though perhaps not the most elegant!


Sorry about plate flower troubles!

To the person who had trouble with their plate flowers.  I am so sorry!  I have had some recently made ones fall apart lately too.  I don't know if GE changed their formula for Silicone II for windows and doors (clear) or if I got a bad tube.   You do have to look carefully at the date because once its outdated it won't work for plate flowers.
I'm going to be experimenting through the summer and will see what lasts over the winter and let you know what is working.
