This was my first sewing project in some time and what better to sew than a pencil skirt! I choose a forest green stretchy dress material as well as some royal blue raw silk for the waist band. This is one of the very few garmets I decided to use a pattern on. I modified it slightly by slimming the whole pattern down, especially towards the bottom hem for a more bell shaped skirt. I also added an assymetrical tri-bow ornament on the back of the skirt, just above the zipper. I was slightly inspired by the Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2008 line. (I think mostly it was the idea of a skirt in these colours)
1 mt green dress material, scrap blue raw silk, interfacing, 7” green zipper, and thread.
My boyfriend for shooting me!
