Let me just start this post out by saying that this was a bigger pain in the arse than I expected. To counter the negativity, though, it was totally worth it.
With that off my chest, I found an accordion skirt that was the perfect length for me, but 10 sizes too big.
Sewing a seam into a normal skirt? No problem. Sewing a seam into an accordion so that it blends in perfectly with the permanent folds? Ugh.
I checked where the existing seams lay, and they’re hidden within the fold.
I cut out enough material so that the skirt would fit and attempted to put it back together. I had to undo the band too.
To make sure the seam is hidden in the fold, you have to sandwich one side into the fold of the other.
The front should look like this (not sewn all the way).
Sew the band back on.
Can you see the seam?
Yes? Pretend you don’t.
I like how neither I or these ladies decided to back down on being in each other’s photographs. BONUS!
