I inherited this oldish Moschino skirt from my sis. It hung in my closet for about a year. It's this delicious stretchy blue canvas, denimish but not exactly denim. The front has two slits that hit my legs high on the thigh. And I never, ever wore it.
As a college prof., I'm keen on clothes that look formalish but are also replete with comfort. Comfy skirts are high on my list. Especially since the husband bought me a pair of knee-high Camper boots for xmas last year. The boots, a comfy skirt, and a pair of tights--it's almost as good a jeans. But I couldn't wear this Moschino skirt, because I would be too naked.
So I committed sacrilege.
As you can see, I sewed panels into the slits, giving the skirt a neat a-line silhouette. I wear it all the time now. I just hope the fashion gods don't strike me down for f***ing with perfection.
Here's the skirt with one panel finished, for comparison.
