Angela Kane Gold Pencil Skirt

Added Apr 2, 2012

This is a pencil skirt using Angela Kane’s pattern. I have used the pattern before – my blue denim skirt posted here in February 2011. I altered the waistband slightly by widening it and slightly contouring it. It’s fully lined. The pattern has a vent but I ended up drafting my own with a generous 2.5 inch width. I drafted the lining pieces to fit and altered the back lining pieces to allow for some ease at the hips and above the vent. I used Sunnilj9’s tutorials posted here on Burdastyle which are linked below. This You Tube video here was also helpful in sewing up the back vent.

    How did the first one turn out? Did you learn anything the hard way that you could pass on?

      Thanks marec. Took 2 muslins to get the fit right! I like the colour as well – I don’t have many light coloured more formal skirts for summer.
