This is a great pencil skirt pattern – the welt pockets and fly front make it a little bit different from a usual pencil skirt style and could be made casual or dressy depending on the fabric you use. I made mine from a navy blue large polka dot fabric that I plan to wear to work with a jacket or casually with a red cardigan.

This pattern isn’t too difficult, but getting those angled welt pockets in at properly was quite tricky. I made mine in a white cotton to stand out from the skirt – otherwise all that effort to make them would have been wasted!

I did change the pattern by sewing an invisible zip at the side seam instead of a fly front purely because I made this on a sewing weekend away and didn’t bring the right zip along. If I make this again I would make the pattern as is because it’s well drafted and looks really good. More details at my blog: http://www.loweryourpresserfoot.blogspot.com.au/2014_07_01_archive.html
