Help with Hems


The other night I was digging through my closet for clothes that had Lolita possibilities and I happened upon quite a few...the most intriguing was a handkerchief hem skirt that I acquired some time ago. It reminded me of those asymmetrical-hemmed skirts I saw in some of the Punk Lolita examples.

Sure, the skirt is far too long at the moment and I’ll have to take the hem up...but the tartan that it’s printed with is so pretty and I plan on doing some sort of applique to make it even cuter~ *

But more importantly, it has that bell shape to it. However, I’m not sure how to handle petticoats and asymmetric hems. I know with punk styles it’s alright to have some petticoat showing, so I guess it would be best if I adjusted the hem so the jagged tips met the hems of my petti. I think they look a bit funny flopping over the end of the petti when everything else looks perfect.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to tackle this problem. I think I might have thought of a good solution, but I tend to be a bit short sighted and might have missed an easier one. ^^;;

Thanks! i
