I got this super cute skirt at the mall a few months ago (I may have even blogged about it) but I have been unsuccessful in finding a suitable shirt to wear with it. My “sister-in-law to be” & I even checked out the mall again this week with no luck.
Finally on Friday, I went back to Old Navy and found a shirt that might just work. It was on sale, but still cost a pretty penny. When I got home and tried it on with the skirt, it was still too long. (The skirt has a nice belt. If I wear a long shirt and it covers the belt, it looks really frumpy.)
So I decided to cut the shirt myself. I must have taken 5 inches off it. Then I also decided to take the trim on the sleeves so it would match. Not conventional, but it worked. The shirt is linen, so it looked like that was just the style.
