    i am an hourglass shape so i prefer the pencil skirt.

    Its classic, sexy and versatile. It can be dressed up or down and can suit any occasion.

    The simple design can be embellished with the colour, texture and pattern of the fabric.

    I love skirts of any kind! I wear them all year long. My all time favourite is an A-line skirt. I’ve been trying to reproduce my favourite skirt that I bought years ago, but am unwilling to take it apart to get the pattern perfect.

    I love a lined straight skirt that hugs my curves and ends with a surprise flippy back kick or pleats or sassy slits to show a bit of leg and make it a dream to wear!

    Me and my daughter love wearing skirts to feel feminine, circle skirts are our firm favourites. For me, on a night out, I love my high waisted skirt or pencil skirts. Simple A-line skirts and pleated skirts for a summer day. For a more sophisticated do, a classic Dior look of a gorgeous circle skirt with undergarment ruffle to create fullness and the va va vooom.

    Bias cut 4 gore skrits are my favorite. They are sort of like A line skirts, but more flattering. My second favorite is the pencil skirt.

    I really love skirts!!! as many has said my favorite is A line skirt!!! the good thing is i live in a country where i can wear skirt all year around!!!! Most people i know started sewing skirts, because when you are beginer you just join 2 pieces of fabric and an elastic at the waist and voila!!! you feel like the greater fashionista ever, then you realized you has been bitten by the sewing bug!!! (souds familiar to any of you?)
