i recently bought this skirt from jcrew and alas it was too big. unfortunately this a pretty common dilemma when your my size (five-foot-zer0). so i decided to take it in. sewing is my new point of conquer. i picked up the Chanel biography and am in the process of saturating myself in all the coco films (althought the first was a dissapointment – Coco Chanel, 2008, starring Shirley MacLaine, Coco Before Chanel should definitely be watched – if not simply because Audrey Tautou is one of the only “ladies” that exists in the world.) More on that later.
I handstitched the whole alteration. It fits like a glove and my beau is sick of seeing it on me. which may be to my advantage.
CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION. updates soon.
