Update! i will be sing this skirt as a backup, but i'm going to make my own. I love this one, bt it doesn't offer the flexibility i'd prefer it to have.
So! i saw this skirt at Salvation Army for $3.50 and figured hey why not! All i needed to do was shorten it a tad bit and on the side where the slit used to be, i used some of the leather i trimmed, and sewn it between.
But! i ran out of thread the other day, so the progress made after was pinning, in prep for finishing the ends when i buy more.
Ah! note, it comes just a little below my waist, so by all means my actual hip is not that thin hahaha
