That looks great! I really don't care for my long tassels either, TBH... I think I may try this surgery of sorts!

Great job- it looks so professional. I too LOVE the long tassels but more on my MAM.. I think the Matinee would look great with shorter tassels.

Nice job!
I generally like the long tassels, but the way you shortened the tassels makes your matinee look more balanced! Such a good idea....

You are one brave woman! That really turned out well. I wish that I were that crafty. I actually adore the long tassels on my Matinee but it's nice to know that there is a way to shorten them for those that aren't attracted to that look.

I have a question. I purchased a Matinee in ocean blue and gold from a local boutique and it doesn't have tassels. Do all of them come with tassels because I would actually like some? Thank you in advance.

This is such a fabulous idea! I just got my first RM MAM and the only thing I'm not crazy about are the long tassles, I'm just not a tassle person. I thought of just taking them off entirely but that would make it harder to zip and unzip.

I don't know if I'm brave enough to try this though, I don't even sew on a button but it sure would be great to be able to modify these, I LOVE how your shorter tassles look!

Brilliant idea!
