Feathers Flights // Sewing Blog: Make it Modest-Close a Vent


Make it Modest-Close a Vent

What do you do when you find the perfect dress or skirt that has a long slit up the back? Close it up. My friend Beth asked me if I could do this for her and of course I said yes! I don't have any before pictures, sorry, but here's the after. 

I love that you can't even tell I changed it!
I kind of made it up as I went but it turned out great! I made a tutorial on how to do this here. Here is what it looks like open.


  1. What a good idea, Heather! Love it!

  2. You know, I wore a pencil skirt to one of my interviews, and while it would have felt fine for a night out, I felt like my whole backside must be showing (it really wasn't!). This is a great idea!

  3. Wow this is an awesome idea Heather!! I would have never thought of that, I'm impressed!

  4. Such a creative idea!! Where did you get the extra fabric from? Still trying to figure it out;)
