I made this pencil skirt for a client who found me here on Burdastyle. She contacted me via Etsy and inquired about making a dress similar to my Vogue 9668 dress. (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/african-wax-print-dress-vogue-9668).
She didn’t have enough fabric to make the dress she wanted, so after many convos on Etsy, we settled on this pencil skirt.
To maximize the visual continuity of the stripes, I opted to make a one seam skirt, shaping it with darts in the front back and side. I made a size 14 ( waist 37.5", hip 48"), with a 27" hem in front and 28" hem in back.
