Ina Skirt by Pattern Review: You know the old adage about horizontal stripes make you look wider, vertical stripes make you look taller? That’s because the eye follows the stripes. The stripes on the Ina skirt are designed to run vertically, making your legs look like they go on and on and on!
Jade Skirt by Paprika Patterns: In the 70s women’s legs got longer. Or at least they appeared to as hemlines rose higher and higher! To add inches to your legs, make the mini version of the Jade skirt. (midi version pictured)
Gabriola Skirt by Sewaholic Patterns: Seemingly contradictory, a maxi skirt will also lengthen your legs. And what better way to do it than with a swishy, flowy, maxi skirt made from a lightweight fabric like voile. The Gabriola in voile, chiffon, or lawn confuses and delights the eye of the beholder into thinking you’ve got the legs of an Amazon!
Tiered Maxi Skirt by Pattern Emporium: The tiers on this skirt present the maker with the unique opportunity to add to their height. Choose complimentary fabrics for the different tiers, or create an ombre effect, and whammy! You’ve grown a few inches!
Ladies Yoga Pencil Skirt by Jocole: When a skirt hugs the body, like a pencil skirt, the hemline is almost irrelevant, and the subject becomes legs. Specifically your legs and how long they are!
There you have it; 5 Skirts to Lengthen Your Legs! Now you can feel confident about wearing a skirt…with pride!
