Muse adjustments

So today I caught up and my muse and she kindly tried on the skirt. She loved it, but kept saying "it's 3/4 length", meaning, "it's too short dear". So tonight I unpicked the hem and trim, added another 3 1/2 inches, placed the trim over the additional piece of skirt and here's how the set looks.


The seams create the look of a tailored skirt and it's lined, but the waist is fully encased elastic. So then I recreated the skirt, but added a crotchet off-white trim, because her mum used to do really fine crotchet.  


The lace bow on the trim was a last minute idea. The bow is sewn onto the trim and only on one side. Well, it is a gift.
