One Option for Altering a Circle Wrap Skirt

Trying to keep the momentum going, since my first attempt at altering the skirt didn't satisfy me, I tried again.
This version has kept the wide hem, but the attached waist sash is now a casing for a 1" elastic, and it is very cute on.


I didn't have the space to lay the skirt out and trim the hem properly, it was trimmed while on the dressform.
The raggedy edge was tamed by my trusty serger, unthreaded, here are some before and after shots.



The hem looks razor sharp.
