Quick steps after the jump!
1. The original skirt.
2. Turn the skirt inside-out and draw a curved hem using a fabric-marking pencil.
3. Cut off excess fabric, leaving a seam allowance. I left 1/2 inch. Zigzag stitch over the raw edge. Cut the fabric on the other side of the skirt, using the line you've just cut as a guide.
4. Press the seam allowance to the inside of the skirt and stitch it down, either by hand or with the invisible stitch setting on your machine. I did mine by hand.
Saucier indeed. Pairing this mini with tights and a sweater, I'm making baby steps out of my winter style rut.
