Reconstructed Silk Skirt

My mom had this soft, emerald green, floor length silk skirt from the 90’s, and it had this really simple front detail- this extra flap on the front:

Wish I had taken a before picture! But here it is now. I deconstructed the skirt by ripping off the waistband and taking out two of the panels (it had 4, now it only has 2). I also shortened by cutting material off of the top to save the original hem. I made a new, slightly larger waistband from the excess material, sewed the sides back together, and here it is!

    That was an adventurous project. Good job. I like how the skirt flows, yet there is not too much fabric.
