I saw the simplest tutorial video for this project on the net and decided to reconstruct my old skirt and make it into this “conservative yet sexy pencil skirt”. It turned out great! Here is the tutorial:
The original skirt is high waist and this one falls on the hips.
Gianny, the designer, used elastic fabric, but my skirt was made from a suiting material, so it has a zip on one side.
