I bought this houndstooth suiting fabric a while ago with the intention of making a pencil skirt. However I quickly realised that I had no pattern for one, so I decided to make my own. In all honesty I was a bit daunted at first but once I got everything down on paper it all made sense to me. I knew I wanted it high waisted and for it to have a slit at the back. I also gave it 4 darts in total, 2 in front, and 1 either side of the zipper, it’s also fully lined. I’m so happy with the outcome, and this experience has definitely given me the confidence to make more of my own patterns as it’s very rewarding.
