How to Put Side Slits in a Skirt

Remove the Side Stitching
Put Side Slits in a Skirt

Use a seam ripper to remove the side seam.

Rain Blanken
Unfold the bottom hem and start to remove the stitching from the side seam of the skirt with your seam ripper. Cut a little bit of the seam thread to show a small portion of your leg, or go higher to show a bit more. You may want to try on the skirt after loosening a few inches to see if you have opened the seam as high as you'd like.

After you have opened the side seam, fold back the edges.
