Vintage Hem DIY

Have you ever had a skirt that you absolutely LoVe but it's just a tad bit too short {so you're constantly tugging at it, worried that you might accidentally moon some unsuspecting person as you bend down down pick up your baby}? Well, I went to Sensibly Styled where she featured an amazing website called Vintage Hem. They sell slips that have beautiful, fun fabric sewn to the bottom to make your dresses a little bit longer! Love the concept, but as you know, I'm way too cheap. So, I went to Hobby Lobby, found some beautiful lace {that was 50% off!!} and sewed it to the bottom of an old slip I had. Ta-da!

Now ladies, don't go and put lace on a miniskirt and call it modest!! You can see through lace...just remember that...


  1. adorable! I love that. And the lace is so pretty.

  2. That is incredibly EASY! Why didn't you sew it to the skirt? I guess you could interchange the slip lace (different slips) for a different look? I am going to TOTALLY do this. I have a skirt in mind!!! I bet you feel so purdy!

  3. I have a couple of skirts I need to "lengthen". This way I can use the same slip with different skirts!
