Ina Skirt by Skirt Fixation

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 sewn by Skirt Fixation

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

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!

Ladies Tiered Maxi Skirt sewn by Skirt Fixation

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!

Sewn by Skirt Fixation

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!

One thought on “5 Skirts to Lengthen Your Legs

  1. I know it might sound strange and funny, but I read that actually the shorter the skirt the higher the heel as apparently a more visible leg might benefit more definition :D,While the right long skirt can lengthen the legs more and being implicitly defined but not visible, they might not need heels to be as high.
    But personally I find many flat shoes to be as flattering, just sharing :).
