My daughter wears a combination skort/kilt as part of her school uniform. Of course, it is tooooo long. (I remember being a teen once, long ago, and I wore my skirts short then too.) So, I’m not arguing with her on this.
The problem she’s having is that when she rolls the waistband, the pleats on the back stick out over her bum (She’ s a petite 80 lbs, so it’s the pleats, not the bum)
Do you think we would have any luck shortening it? There’s a professional dressmaker in town who could do it. We can only shorten it so much, as some teachers are stricter than others (Official school rules say that it can only be 4″ above the knee if the student is kneeling. Honored more in the breach than in the observance.)
I can just see the designers sitting around a table – – hmmm, if we design the waistband this way – it’ll look like crap when they roll it. LOL
