01/2011 Pencil skirt with godet

Added Jul 24, 2011

What’s wrong with these pictures? Exactly, it’s July and I am wearing a woolen skirt and jacket.
I finished this skirt in April and couldn’t wear it because it was too hot. Now we have 15°C (59°F)!

The pattern was actually quite easy but the fabric was a pain to work with. However, I like the details of the skirt like the yokes and the godet.

Material Notes

Wool with stretch

      Hi Meldbombs, thanks for your comment!
      Looking back I am not 100% happy with my fabric choice. Next time I would use a fabric that presses and drapes better. In addition it shouldn’t ravel easily. Wool coating may have too much body (unless you prefer the godet sticking out like a shark fin).

    Very elegant, perfect with the jacket and the red shoes! I have always found it very difficult to make that perfect pencil skirt, but you pulled it off nicely.
