I’ve had this skirt for at least 10 years and I love the fruit fabric. It got a bit tight in the waist over the years, developed a small hole at the bottom of the zipper and I wanted to shorten it. I cut off the top, reinserted the invisible zipper and had to take in the sides a bit. Made narrow rolled hem. Overall am pleased with the result.
