Early Sixties Suit Skirt

in Vintage Sewing

A little while ago I made a fantastic pencil skirt using a vintage pattern I found purely by chance.


Initially I followed the pattern, but I wasn’t happy with the fit of the skirt.. I became a bit inventive with my alterations but ended up with what I had in mind.

Fingers crossed it holds up after being worn and washed a few times.

Your pencil skirt is sitting on a figure perfect. Like this silhouette.

This pencil skirt is perfection. I love that it hits right past the knee. My absolute favorite length-smart, classy, and just the right amount of sexy.
