If you are looking for a true pencil skirt try this one out. This is perfect for a traditional wiggle skirt popular in the 50’s. You can also adapt to make it in a stretch giving even more wiggle. Here is a pic of mine. I made it out of animal print similar to a velvet. Good for winter and fall days. I lined in in a dark blue satin. I also did not do the usual waistband but rather a shaped waistband.

Material Notes

The material is similar to a velvet in weight. This is also like fun fur, not sure what it’s called.
