Any way to make a leather skirt bigger?

I've just rediscovered the most beautiful Ox blood leather skirt that I bought 13 years ago.

It needs the zip replacing, but still it's about an inch off zipping up. Whilst I'm in a diet (2 1/2 down, another 1/2ish to go) I don't think it will fit then tbh. I'm a totally different shape now to what I was then..

So, is there a way of making it a bit bigger?

It's beautiful and I need it hmm

Could you have a contrasting panel or two put in, say down the side seams?

Side panels might work.

Other than that it's water for the next month just so I can bloody wear it once.

It really is the most beautiful soft beautiful thing in a fucking size 8

I have just bought an Oxblood leather Banana Republic skirt today too and am thrilled with myself! grin

Good news!

The stitchy lady can fix! She's going to cut 3" off the top so the waist starts lower down where it's bigger! (It's below knee anyhow so 3 inches won't make any difference wish that could always be the way wink)

Only gonna cost £15

Delighted!
