I rarely alter my clothes, mainly because I am too lazy, and this time I am super glad I did not manage to shorten this skirt. It was a bit too long and was giving me kind of a hard time to walk in it as it got caught in my heels. Now I just hike it up over my waist line, which in fact is non existing at the moment, and the pleating in front is hugging my growing baby bump in all the right places. I can now wear it with flats, even if it drags a bit, but at least I don't risk tripping over it. The tricky part is that none of my pants fit me anymore and neither do some of the skirts, so I might have to start to alter some of them and turn them into maternity wear instead of buying new stuff. I am sure my wallet will be happy with this decision.
