Vi Mönster 3324 – two-piece skirt

in Vintage Sewing

Hello people, long time no see! Is this because I´ve stopped sewing all together? No, no. I am just a lazy photographer;-).

Well, here are one of my recent creations, it´s a pencil skirt cut in one whole piece (plus waistband, hence the title). This is a peculiar, and quite interesting way of drafting skirts, I must say!

The skirt gets its shape through darts and pleats, and a back vent. I have been using this skirt a lot this winter, as it is both warm, comfy, and quite stylish, if you ask me!

The pattern is Swedish, Vi Mönster 3324, and is probably from the late 50´s or early 60´s. I´m actually not sure. But the pattern comes with both a full skirt and a pencil skirt, a jacket and a hat! Cuteness.

Love this skirt. I've seen the the two piece ones with the full round skirts but never a pencil skirt.

It looks great on you too. Great job!
