Godet Pencil Skirt

Bought the pattern from the German Burdastyle page before it got here, bought the fabric in Summer and just now got around to making this skirt.
I hope the godet allows me to ride my bicycle in this skirt, because I love pencil skirts and I love riding my bike everywhere and the two just don’t mix :)
Too bad I don’t have any pictures wearing it, but the hubby fell asleep so that’s not happening.
I am just glad I figured out how to use a serger in time to finish the seams – BEAUTIFUL! (just ask me)
And the invisible zipper worked as well – cheers all around!

UPDATE: Just rode my bike to work in this skirt and it works great.

      I don’t think so. On the pattern picture the skirt has a black band on top. The instructions say to attach the ribbon on the inside, then wrap it around the one end of the zipper opening and attach it to the outside.
      But I suppose you can just install it on the inside. That would solve the problem of finding ribbon that fits the fabric.

    Isn’t the petersham supposed to be turned to the wrong side, to reinforce the waist from the INSIDE?

      Thank you!
      I just asked everybody for JoAnn gift cards last year for Christmas and went out and got myself a serger when it was on sale.
      It took me a while to figure it out, I think I had the dumbs, though, because it’s really not hard.
      Just watch out that you don’t accidentally have extra fabric pulling in because a seam ripper won’t help you once it’s cut off.
