    I made this in black cotton sateen. The pattern fit was fairly accurate and the full lining is a nice addition. The main variation I made was to eliminate the front pockets. They seem oddly placed (especially since this is a hip-fit, rather than a waist-fit skirt) and also because I noticed that there were problems with gaping in some of the project photos. .

    A note on the style: I wouldn’t say this is a true “pencil skirt,” although the cut is straight. (Anyway the pencil skirt is a nice idea on tall/slim figures, but unfortunately they can tend to look rather dowdy too). So, I made it a little shorter and it is still fine for work or elsewhere. Also, I used an invisible zip, which I think looks a lot more finished—had to sew the pieces in a different order from the instructions though. It’s a fairly simple pattern, and so I would recommend it for most sewers.

    The pleats just look accidental to me.

    I agree, perfect for the office. But, it could go sexy too, if made in satin with the front seams slit about 6"!
