Converting a tree skirt to a skirt to wear.

Post by photoguy207 »

I have been spending a lot of time at a store taking Santa photos and keep on walking by the tree skirts and thought hmmm, there has to be something on the internet about converting one to a holiday skirt to wear. And yes there is!!

I have never seen or even heard of a tree skirt before. Perhaps I could convert one of my old mini skirts into one with Christmas coming up.

In essence a tree skirt is a skaters skirt for a holiday tree -

Would need some waist band fitting adjustments and the hem length.

The hips would be of no concern like the skaters skirt
"YES SKIRTING MATTERS"!
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

We sell them in our store - metal ones, rattan ones, water hyacinth ones. We do have some that are really nice and furry but the inner circles are so tiny and they aren't very long. Marked as 90cm which I think is the outer diameter. I have been perusing the possibilities but I just can't see any way for it to happen.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

This was a recurring thought every Christmas, but never got around to it. Big full skirts / circle / poodle aren't my style, but if given the chance I'd probably wear one.
