    Sewing but not quilt related question...Skirt, long or shorter?

    Ok, I am making matching skirts for me and my daughter for Easter. Silly I know but oh well. I asked her if she wanted me to make her baby doll a dress and she said yes. lol

    Anywho, my daughter's hits right below the knees. I made my long, to my ankles, but now I am not sure if I like that long. So need opinions....hubby says shorter, but I don't like my legs so I hate wearing short skirts but I thought about some brown boots. So opinions please:

    Long:




    Shorter:

    I don't wear a skirt very often, but when I do, mid-calf is my preferred length. It is a flattering length and creates a visually pleasing relationship between skirt and top if they are different fabrics. Plus boots are great with that length as well.

    Thanks...so I guess short it is...you, hubby, Mom, my sister and my cousin all said shorter. lol

    I will trim it tomorrow. Been one of those days where you would love to scream then go to bed. And since Little Bit (aka our daughter) is asleep, I will take my chance to rest some!

    The shorter version for sure.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    I plan to shorten it today.

    Any suggestions on a shirt? I have some green I thought about using for Little Bit, maybe a pillowcase type shirt, but you never know if it will be warm or cool on Easter. Or should I go with the cream color and add pops of color? What style for me?

    Longer for fall and winter, shorter for spring and summer. My dd and I only wear dresses and skirts, NEVER shorts, slacks or jeans. Tea length (just below the wide part of the calf) is flattering on almost anyone.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.
