Remember my Turn skirt and how excited I was about the fabric and how I made it go around and around and around? I may have even mentioned that I had enough fabric left for a pencil skirt. Well, I did, and here is the pencil skirt, and my stripe matching is even awesomer than it was with the Turn skirt.
Check out this:
OK, so that’s the front of the skirt, and it’s not that exciting. What about when you see the side?
OK, that’s pretty cool! Now we’re getting somewhere!
What about the other side?
Ahhhhhhh! So cool! It goes up on one side and down on the other!
I love it. It makes me so happy! Every time I see it I do a little dance inside!
And wait until you see the back:
Nice stripe matching along the back seam and zip, but not that exciting.
Wait until you see the back pleat!
Here is what it looks like closed:
And then the other side:
The insides are rather pretty too, with bias finished invisible hems:
And a waistband:
All in all, I am rather pleased. It may not be the versatile, classic pencil skirt in black, fawn or grey, but it is fabulous, it fits me perfectly, and it makes me crazily happy.
