Description

I made up this silk twill pencil skirt using a beautiful Oscar de la Renta fabric I ordered from Mood Fabrics website and Burda pattern 7124. I love the high waist created by the yoke and waistband pieces and the nice walking slit. It was a fairly easy pattern to sew up once I marked all the fabric and lining pieces carefully and matched up the seams as numbered. I’ll surely be making up this great pattern again!
