I wanted to make a pencil skirt to wear to church for my birthday. The original went wrong. The pattern was way too big and I kept trying to take it in and I just couldn’t bother anymore. What’s worse, i put in the invisible zip PERFECTLY and had to rip it out.

I used a lavender knit which was too thin so i doubled it. I used the fold as the hem. I cut out the pattern using another pencil skirt I had.

I braided leftover scraps to make the belt. I bought the top.

All in all it turned out really nicely.

I also made the fascinator in my hair. It’s really a veil but i folded down the netting.

Material Notes

lavender jersey/knit

    Thanks Goldilox but I made the Batwing top already. I just don’t have any good quality pics of it
