Let's Skirt Around It, Shall We?

This old wrap-around straight skirt is made of silk and linen with a lining. Not too much wrap-aroundness available on me anymore, so...I relocated the two buttons

on the waistband to fit and then sewed on some decorative buttons down the center front to close it up.  I left about 5 inches open from the waistband down to the first decorative button to be able to get in and out of it.   Then I slip stitched the rest of the front down to secure it even more.

Wrap-arounds are a great fashion buy - they can go either way as needed - downsizing or upsizing, as the case may be.
