Chopped Leather

I've been on a mission to find a vintage leather skirt for quite some time now and I have finally found one. Of course it required some minor alterations:

Before.
Not a good scene.

After.
A big chop for a significantly shorter hem.

I'm debating getting it shortened even more. I feel like if you're going to rock a leather mini, go Tia Carrere in Wayne's World and make it micro.
Thoughts?

  7. no... the length is perfect. Any shorter might be trashy... it's leather.. too short could mean trouble ;)
