The second task was to repair a burn hole in a beloved skirt of mine.
I've been wearing this skirt with flannel shirts and clogs at home this winter, so while the length may not be flattering, I like the gathered profile of this thrifted skirt. I liked it so much that I searched for a gathered denim skirt for several months and finally found a LandsEnd version. But, when I wore it to campus last Tuesday, the length felt decidedly frumpy. I'm thinking that I will shorten it, but first I want my readers' advice. The first two photos feature the skirt at its present length. On the left, I'm wearing clogs (a bit of a heel) and on the right, I'm wearing penny loafers. I want the skirt to work with both shoes.
In these two photos, I've rolled the waist once and added a belt to cover the unsightly mess. Again, the clogs are on the left, loafers on the right.
In this last pair of photos, I've rolled the waist twice, which is why the gathering looks a little wonky.
What do you think? Should I shorten it? Two inches or four inches or even shorter.

Now, I have some ironing to catch up on.
