Not the most exciting skirt in the world but hopefully the beginnings of lots of variations on a theme! It took me a while to fully understand how to create an accurate skirt pattern but now I think I have mastered it! I have documented how to do it on my blog. It’s probably old news to those in the know but I found it a lot easier to grasp once I had laid out these steps in my own words and pictures!
This skirt was made from cheap lightweight suit fabric, a remnant I found in a local fabric shop. The lining is far more exciting: two-tone polka dot poly – 3 metres found in a charity shop for £1!
I used the lapped zipper technique, though I could use more practice with this to get it a bit neater!
I have some lovely vintage blouse patterns that would look so classy paired with a pencil skirt. Just got to find me some time!
