Thrift store skirt re-engineered and embellished

This was a gathered skirt that was very unflattering. I took of the waistband, straightened the gathers, and put in 2 darts in the front and 2 in the back. I added a narrow, contrasting black fleece waistband, and embellished the skirt with black yarn that I got from my friend, and some flower shaped buttons that she also helped me pick out. The buttons match those of the matching jacket (no photo of that yet).
