When I drafted this skirt I had the Kasia skirt shape in mind. I really love the pencil skirt shape (as well as fuller shapes too). I added a nice little godet pleat at the back to add a bit of detail. The fabric i’ve used is stretch cotton twill which was a bit of a nightmare to use in places as it is prone to over stretching while sewing, but interfacing came to the rescue. The waist band is lined with a blue floral cotton lawn as well as the pocket lining. The hem has been hand stitched due to the unreliable nature of the fabric!
(After having a look at the pics I couldn’t help think that I looked a bit like an air hostess, hence the name of the skirt).
