I hate it when that happens: I shrank my new skirt

So I bought a skirt at Goodwill for $3.50 last week.  When I got home I realized it was dry clean only.  But it seemed kind of silly to dry clean a piece of clothing that costs less than the dry cleaning itself.  So I hand washed it.  Since it was a second hand purchase I used warm water for good measure.

I have never seen anything shrink like this skirt shrank:

I should have taken a before picture.  It looked so much better before.

It shrank so much I think it is too tight to be work appropriate.  Also you can see the lining, which you definitely could not see before.

I guess $3.50 is a cheap price to pay for a life lesson in when not to hand wash your clothes.
