Description

This is a fitted pencil skirt. It’s very basic and simple with one front panel and two back panels. I added a waistband and used a invisible zip extended to the waistband. It’s a heavy weight knit (96% polyester and 4% spandex) with a floral print on one side. I used only 80cm long fabric (150cm width). See My Blog http://cozycotton.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/floral-pencil-skirt.html for more detail and photos.

      Thank you. Glad to see your profile as a corset maker! I always want to learn to make one as I think it’s a basic to make my wedding dress.

    Very nice fit, perfect silhouette and the fabric is so romantic! I also like that you paired it with stripped shirt, bold combination.
