Description

I found this floral remnant loosely woven cotton about a year ago and new immediately I wanted to make a pencil skirt a la jcrew’s floral pencil skirts. I guess it wasn’t a priority because it too me forever to get around to it. I used pattern J from Sasahara Noriko’s Sweet Feminine Clothes pattern book with slight modifications to omit the tiers.

I love the 8 darts and lack of waistband. It adds a little interest to the very basic silhouette.

finished with blind hem
