The perfect pencil skirt

Posted on September 30, 2016 by Nikki Brooks-Revis

If you're like me and love a pencil skirt, then you know the perfect fabric is the makings of a great skirt. Must have a bit of stretch, must have a bit of weight,  must be able to hold it's shape well and must make your butt look nice. This geometric knit perfect for fall is just that fabric.

The pattern used for the skirts is my go-to self drafted pencil skirt pattern here with the following alterations:

Yellow- no alterations

Blue- removed the waist band and zipper

Added 3" to the height of the waist

Added 2 5"x30" wraps 2" down from the waist band.  (the wraps are 10" wide and folded in half)

The white top is a mens button up with the collar removed that was stolen from my husband.  The  yellow off the shoulder top is vintage Butterick 5975 with the following alterations:

-Cut the ruffle in an extra small in order to remove the elastic option.
