Description

I modified a simple pencil skirt pattern by adding a waistband and slightly lowering the waist, but it is still pretty high-waisted. I also used contrasting buttons for closure in the back instead of a zipper to add some color.

Material Notes

1 3/8 yards of navy cotton twill fabric, navy thread, six buttons

Difficulty

Novice

    Wow, I really love the contrasting buttons on the waistband. What a great change from a zip!
