Black Denim Pencil Skirt

I really like the high waisted look, but wasn’t able to find a black pencil skirt that fitted well and looked good so I decided to make one! The front has a pleated design to add some interest and I made the waistband into a diamond shape at the front. I put a zip in the back and added a slit to make it easy to walk around. The material is black denim.

    I am not a big fan of the high waisted look myself. It reduces a figure by smashing chest and hips together, and the entire belly is drowned out. The end result often seems to look unbalanced and well, ugly to me. I’m actually curious to find out why you like it as I don’t think it’s very easy to look good in something high-waisted. (to be honest, somehow you pull it off) That being said, although it’s not my style (but obviously this is merely personal preference) I really like the close-ups and the pleads on the front, they look really cool. You’re obviously very skilled.

    Please forgive me my blunt opinion, but I’m rather curious to know how women feel about this entire high-waist thing.

      joost52 – I think the appeal of a higher waist (at least for me) is its ability to highlight the narrowest part of a woman’s body.

      Thanks for sharing. I’m not sure I get it, but I do think everybody should be wearing whatever they want or feel best in :)

      Thanks for your comment, I appreciate your honesty. I like the high-waisted look as rheamc said it highlights the thinnest part of your body which gives a great hourglass figure. I think it gives women a nice outline especially if you have small hips.

      Thank you, I learned something. I guess I’ll have a lot to learn about women if I ever want to make clothes for them ;)
