How to easily upsize a skirt waistband

When I scored that skirt years ago in London it was too tight but could be zipped worn higher on my waist + some tummy-sucking-in. It’s since moved to 3 different countries with me and unfortunately years later, no amount of straining could get that zip even halfway closed! Fortunately my refashionista upsizing projects have made me loads less fearful about chopping up gear I’ve had for years!

Et pour compléter car je n'avais pas assez de tissu, j'ai utilisé du jersey Milano noir des Coupons St Pierre.

Voici le résultat, après quelques heures de travail :

How to sew high waist shorts 💡


Summer unfortunately is behind us 👣, but  we can still count on quite a few warm ☀ days, 
although not so warm to jump into shorts without tights and full boots but
who said that shorts look bad in combination with boots 👢 and long sweater👚.

Dress Before :
Beautiful color, patterns and quite big piece of fabric after my first refashion

Ready shorts on me
I love those shorts , they are extremely comfortable and, you must admit, they look super nice 👯


Love ,

No Sew
