This super quick and easy DIY project is a great way to upcycle and breathe new life into a piece.
Beyond just changing the look of a skirt, adding a skirt slit (or split) is a great way to improve your range of motion.
Do you have a skirt that restricts your ability to walk quickly or take normal sized steps?
Adding a side slit can give you more walking room and make your skirt more conformable to wear and walk in.
How cool is that?

- Mini Skirt
- Knee Length

- Prep your skirt for adding a slit
- My favorite quick + easy seam ripping methods
