This skirt may be my new ‘go to’ pencil skirt pattern. I made very few alterations and the fit is great. I’m quite curvy but this skirt managed to fit them all.
Since I like my pencil skirts quite fitted I decided to reinforce all the seams so there would be no accidental mishaps walking up/down the stairs or with sitting down too abruptly on a chair. I applied silk organza to the side seams as well as to the back seam to help support the godet and prevent any seam ripping in that area, blogged about here. I also reinforced the front and back inward corners using more silk organza, blogged about here.
The only change I would make for next time would be to make the waistline seam a bit more snug so the skirt would hit me just above my waist. Otherwise it’s a perfect pencil skirt pattern with a lovely godet.

Wool Classic, Bemberg lining, silk organza for stabilizing the seams and horsehair canvas for stability in the yoke waistband.
