I bought this skirt at DI a few years ago but hadn't worn it because the zipper was ripping out. This morning I had a go at it with needle and thread and understood, in a flash of clarity, that things like this are why people learn to use their sewing machines and do not just leave them boxed up in the hall closet. Sigh . . .
Anyway. The skirt. I really like the cut and the design, but there are two problems:
1) It is too small. I can't zip it up all the way, which can result in a funny bunch in the side where the unzipped flaps, well, flap around.
2) I need to figure out what goes with it other than a boring black top. Any suggestions? My sister Jenny has an awesome green cardigan but would probably notice if it disappeared.
