The Pencil Skirt version of Simplicity 9825, a 4 gore, yoked skirt. Easy to make and very flattering. I added a lining and some bias trim with a navy and white diagonal stripe on it so the skirt wasn’t so “uniformy” as I used a pretty boring navy fabric. The first pictures show me wearing it with a Burda Lydia T-shirt. The skirt is blogged here
A very cheap stretch cotton sateen.
