I bought this long grey skirt a while ago and I decided that if I wanted to keep wearing it I had to change the look. I had some giant rick rack (1.5 inches wide is pretty huge), which I bought when I was in Los Angeles a couple months ago. So I thought, why not add it to my boring skirt?
One evening I just basted it in place and then hand sewed the rick rack on the skirt. The place where the two ends joined wasn’t exactly seamless but I think it turned out OK. The ends join on the side so you don’t really notice it.
Here are some details of the steps I took.
