So I was going through my usual elleuk.com hit and I came across this black sheer maxi skirt. I fell in love. I instantly thought thought of my Jil Sander inspiration of a simple white tee tucked into the fluorescent maxi shirt. Jil Sander convinced me to get a maxi. Didn’t get a fluoro pink, yet, but really liked this black sheer maxi by Miss Selfridge.
So I went for a little look around to see if I could find a little cheaper. Success! I went onto Asos and found a black sheer maxi for only £15.00. However, the inside material was long and not quite petite-friendly. I decided it needed a little tweaking…
Then got my trusty Sew and Save box, pinned the skirt, cut the skirt… then voila!
As a petite you want to make your legs look as long as possible. The great thing about this skirt once it is cut, is it gives the effect of having longer legs whilst still having the long sheer layer. I’m wearing them with my black suede Pretty-Small-Shoes.
