    I have a plain black pencil skirt which has been stained with bleach just above the knee on the rear side.
    I would like to get an idea of how to embellish this expensive skirt in order to be able to wear it again as I love the fit.
    Could you suggest anything??

    That’s hard to say without seeing the skirt and the placemenat and size of the bleach spots. I would think that a floral applique would be pretty, perhaps also out of a black fabric so it becomes more of a textural design.
