I received some Chinese silk for a present and it was the perfect length to make this pencil skirt. I really like the shape of the finished skirt. I ironed the godet to the inside but it swings out nicely when I walk. However I’m not really used to wearing such fitted clothing so I find it a little difficult to walk in – it’s for wearing on an evening out rather than to the office!
Chinese silk – black & chartreuse
