Definitely on the "to sew" list!

Although I am the shortest one in my family (at 5'7ish), I certainly seem to have myself a pair of long legs. I've inherited my mom's short torso and extra long femurs which can make clothing shopping extra challenging when you're looking for coverage! I can't imagine what ladies who are even taller than me manage to find skirts and dresses without having their bum cheeks poke out with today's extra short fashions! Well - problem solved thanks to the wonderful invention of a skirt extending slip like this one:


Oh why didn't I think of that? Throw a nice neutral layer of lace or two under there and bam! Proper coverage achieved! What a concept! I'm certainly adding this to my must sew list and with my sore hands I may cheat a smidge and just add some trim to a store bought slip! Oh! What a plan! What do you think? What would the best colour be for all around skirt and dress extending and matching potential? 


  1. Charcoal grey and black would work best for me!

  2. That is so clever! I am only 5'3 and the current style of skirts is often too short even for me! I do not understand how regular sized people cope. ~_^ I would definitely do one in black, because that's the neutral I wear most often, but then maybe one in a fun colour too - like royal blue to match with all the emerald clothes that will be out this year! ^_^

  3. Ahem. You are taller than mom. I know this because I'm taller than both of you, and can see. Plus, you're 5'8. Again, my extra height puts me in the know :)
