High waisted pencil skirt pattern

High waisted pencil skirt with vintage buckle

Last year, I wrote a series of tutorials on how to make your own skirt block (sloper), how to then make that into a pattern for a pencil skirt, and how to make a facing for it.

I have just posted instructions on how to adapt your skirt block pattern into a high waisted retro style pencil skirt.  You can see it over at my blog, The House of Marmalade, where you can also find links to all the other tutorials mentioned here.

  1. love the high waist alteration and that buckle is fab. if only i had actual hips so i wouldn't look like a 12 year old when i wear pencil skirts… 😉
