Description

I was inspired after seeing Burdastyle’s “02/2012 Stretch Pencil Skirt #121B”, however as I do not have the figure of a model, decided to give my drafting skills a go instead. I had taken a pattern making course a couple of years ago and have a “me” size sloper to which I can work from. I’ve made a couple of dresses and skirts previously and a pencil skirt is fairly basic(pants are in the realm of way too hard – maybe that can be my next course). I made my pattern up in calico first and made the alterations needed for a better fit.

I decided to skip the fancy panel work in the front – in a stretch with my curves it was just going to pucker – but of course kept the exposed 2 way slide zipper at the back, which, along with the yellow colour, was what made me want to sew this pattern.

Sorry it’s such a bad photo.

Material Notes

I used a Ponte de Roma knit for my first attempt (it was an on-sale material), but am going to knock this one up in a bright sun coloured cotton sateen next weekend.
