Is it still mid summer? Let’s see–summer officially started on June 21 and will end on September 23, so technically, August 4 still qualifies as mid summer. I took a couple of “mental health” days last week and visited the Emily Dickinson museum in Amherst, MA. For those who know me, I am an extreme fan of hers and dedicated a post to her here.
I will be sharing some pictures of that visit in a future post. In the meantime, I wanted to talk about a simple but effective method on how to lengthen a skirt. My supervisor at work shared this idea with me and I immediately loved it. The skirt I am wearing was slightly short for my taste and I was able to add 1 1/4 inches to the length by hand sewing this lace to the hem. It took me literally 10 minutes to sew it by hand. I have added lace to another skirt that I will be presenting in another post.I love this skirt now that it’s a little longer as I was previously thinking of donating it.The following pictures were taken in the original historic village adjacent to my hometown.Mabel is going to Dunkins for her munchkin.This was a mini post (but no mini skirts) and I hope you are all enjoying your summer.
