For some reason, up till now, i didn’t have a single plain black skirt. They all had patterns or something on them. So I scoured the web for a free pencil skirt pattern when I came across a tutorial to draft one from your own measurements. It really wasn’t that hard, and I ended up with a perfectly fitting straight skirt I can wear with anything. I also drafted my own facings instead of lining it.
