No one likes to see a grown woman's knees, I mean, really knees are the least good looking part of legs anyway. A lot of my skirts hit right at the knee, not quite long enough for me to relax and feel adequately covered. When I saw this lonely eyelet lace bed skirt at the thrift store I knew just what to do with it! It was so easy to just cut a length of the ruffle, sew up the side and add an elastic. If I were to do another I'd make the waist fitted, rather than elastic and add a zipper, because it's a little bulkier than I'd like at the top. But otherwise I love seeing the sweet lace peeking out below my skirts. And I love the extra inch or two of coverage!
