Celebrating One Year!

Today, March 28th, marks the anniversary of the creation of Lizzie Diana's! One year ago today, a dear friend of ours came up with the name in our study hall. "Lizzie Diana's," she said. "Sounds like you guys should have a boutique!" And so we started one.

We have had such an amazing time running Lizzie Diana's, from photoshoots to making jewelry, scouring Goodwill to goofing off in the dressing rooms. Running a business with your best friend is really an amazing thing to do. We highly suggest it.

Just a few words of thanks that need to be said:

Lizzie Makes... Tips On Altering Thrifted Skirts

It's no secret that Diana and I frequent Goodwill for unique clothes to sell, or clothes that could use a little TLC. I especially like to keep an eye out for out-dated clothes that could easily become fashionable again with a few alterations here and there.

So, I thought I'd share with you how I alter my skirts!

I got this one at Goodwill for $4.29. Your typical granny skirt: long, sheer, floral. But, I really liked this pattern so I snatched it right up! It's super easy to hem a skirt, provided you have a sewing maching (and even by hand, it isn't too difficult; just more time consuming).
