updating a thrifted skirt

To kick off craft sabbath summer, here is my first project of the summer: updating a thrifted skirt.

The skirt before: I bought this skirt a couple of years ago from Salvation Army. I loved the crazy, vintage pattern but I knew there was something just not right about it. It was just a little too long for me. Can you tell?

The skirt after: Knowing it was too long I sewed for an upgrade. I chopped off about a foot of the fabric and actually sewed it on the inside of the remaining skirt (since the skirt was a little see through on sunny days). This was my final product. Pictures taken by Kirstin Schulz.

Any thoughts? I am pretty sure I love it now.
