I’m excited to have finished this little project as it represents several firsts! It’s my first make of the year that counts towards my Vintage Pledge. It’s the first time I’ve made anything out of either of Gertie’s books (I have both). It’s my first time sewing a lapped zipper, which, thanks to online tutorials was fairly straightforward.
It’s also the first time I’ve made a pencil skirt at all, since I tend to gravitate towards the opposite extreme of very full skirts. It was a nice change not to have to spend tons of time hemming yards and yards of fabric! I’ll definitely be making more of these. 🙂
I added a fun houndstooth lining, I just love little surprises inside garments.
I’m sure I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of this one!
