This is a skirt I’ve made for a wedding in May. Fabric was a chance find on eBay, and I was just waiting for the right project!
Pattern is basic Vogue pencil skirt pattern (no. 9928), which I fitted using the Palmer-Pletsch tissue fitting method. First attempt at fitting a pattern, and really pleased with the results! A little work to be done at the waist to make it perfect, and possibly could have done with slightly more wearing ease, but I’m also of the opinion that a pencil only looks really good when it’s skin tight!
I used the lining as a test for the pattern rather than making a toile, which I can never quite get the energy for!
I also moved the zip to the back seam and added an exposed zip detail, and the grosgrain ribbon waistband (the original pattern had a side concealed zip and a self facing waistband)
Apologies that the pictures aren’t the greatest, I’m still working out the whole home studio thing!
