5 simple steps to flowy & pretty
I love a good high-low hemline, which is strange considering it's basically the mullet of skirts (short in front and longer in the back). I had found an almost-cool skirt at a thrift store (it had a pretty pattern and pockets, but was also an awkward mid-calf length), so I decided to transform it into a trendy, flowy, and downright pretty fishtail style.
*Please note: I made this tutorial after I made the skirt, so please bear with the fact that I used my finished skirt as the example in the steps below. (Just pretend the skirt wasn't already cut & sewn, and we'll be just fine).

Turn the skirt inside out (in case your chalk doesn't wash out, it won't be visible), and fold it in half down the middle.
Important --> fold in half down the middle of the skirt - as if you want to make a crease down the center of the front & back of the skirt. (You'll know you've done it right when the tag in the back of the skirt is folded in half).
Using your chalk, draw a line on the fabric where you will cut it. You want the line to be straight in front, and to taper down on the sides. Then take a deep breath, and cut the fabric.
Optional: you may want to draw it out on something like a paper bag first, then cut it and use it as a pattern like I did.
