Pencil skirt with pleats

Added Oct 20, 2008

Belgrade, Serbia






Don’t ask me when I made this skirt, because I don’t remember. It was left and forgotten in my closet for at least 3-4 years… Now, I know I sewed it, but I have never worn it. I suppose it was too formal for me to wear it back then. Well, it’s not too formal now! :)

It is a basic pencil-shaped skirt with 3 pleats added on the left thigh.

Material Notes

Wool, zipper

    I also love this outfit, but I’m somehow in love with formal clothes ;) Looks great on you!

    I’m certainly glad it didn’t stay in the back of your closet! This is lovely!

    Ghainskom: Nope, the top is store-bought. Unfortunately, my sewing machine doesn’t work well with knit and very stretchy fabrics, so I avoid working with them. I’m considering buying a serger.

    I like the pleats, you should wear it! And I like that the pleats are on one side only, it make the skirt less formal as it could be. I love the top as well, did you sew that?

    Carotte Sauvage: Ha ha, I like how you named my style! I always thought I looked kind of retro in this top and with my hair picked up like on the pic.
