I FINALLY found a pencil skirt pattern that works for me! I’m so happy I could cry. The fit is pretty excellent, if I do say so myself!
This is a vintage pattern, Simplicity 4529, and it’s one of those one yard deals, which makes it fabric efficient, something I just adore!
There are 10 darts in this thing. It’s a dart monster!
I posted more about this on my blog:
wool, plastic zipper
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
