I made this pencil skirt using Simplicity 1465 pattern. The fabric is a lovely Italian cotton geometric woven fabric from Mood Designer Fabrics I ordered online. I used a metal zipper as an exposed zipper instead of the invisible zip as the pattern calls for. I think this is a great pattern and I will use it again and again for a sharp pencil skirt!
