How can you not love pencil skirts... they are just a marriage made in heaven for your curves.... you feel super ace in them immediately, all 50's movie star thang going on... Well that's what was going on inside my head!
I used the Burda 8155 pattern for this variation, and also for the many other pencil skirts I have made ( another post for all of them!)
I made a muslin for this skirt before cutting my fabric, doing a little bit of research I found that there were some fitting issues with pattern... and I was after a well fitting pencil skirt.
I have never been able to find a great one that I want to wear over and over again.... one that would make my booty look like Beyonce's!
Again my fabric decision was made around the warmer weather coming up, so I chose a navy blue cotton poplin.
I got really inspired when I saw this skirt made by http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.com.au check out her blog she makes some super amazing things!
Although I like the cotton poplin as a lighter version for a summers skirt, it does tend to scrunch up when I am walking, and constant fixing of it takes place! Not a lot of stretch too it.... I'm not too bothered by it, I know that the skirt does fit.. the fabric choice may just have to a bit wiser next time!
Stay tuned for pencil skirts galore!
