DIY High-Low Skirt

Here’s my new “mullet” skirt–high hem in the front, low in the back.

Skirt: Crossroads Trading Co.
Tights: Roots Canada
Boots: Hunter via consignment

I’ve liked this style since I first saw it last spring, but I wasn’t keen on spending a lot of money on something trendy. So when my yellow maxi skirt shrunk unevenly, I took it as a sign to start chopping.

I cut away an inverted U of fabric from the front and left the edge¬†unfinished. I think I’ll tire of the skirt before¬†the jersey knit unravels.

On this particular afternoon, Mr. Jean of all Trades and I accompanied my parents to an art show at the Seattle Center. It’s always fun having my own personal photographer (AKA Mom or Fashionable over 50) following me! She’s not only my personal paparazza, she’s a great personal shopper. I hesitated when I saw these boots on consignment until she reminded me that in Seattle, stylish rainboots are a must! I love the comfy wedge heel and grape shade.

I’ve linked up with Thrifters Anonymous at Color Blind and Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet. Have a look at what other thrifty and/or visible women are wearing.
