|The original beautiful (crumpled) silk dress. Very short though!|

|Top-stitched and ironed. So much better now!|
I bought this bold and beautiful Monsoon maxi-skirt from Oxfam in Putney a few summers ago and it has sat in a bag for years. The length of the skirt didn't quite fall at a very flattering point for a maxi so I decided to give it a chop too! The fabric is a very soft lightweight cotton and was difficult to create a perfect hemline because the flared panels of the skirt. It's not too bad but probably not my finest hemming.
