A flattering high-waisted pencil skirt with a kick pleat at the back, she looks fab with our Pussy Bow Blouse or our Silk Cami or any shirt or jumper neatly tucked in. Designed to rise above your natural waist, the Ultimate Pencil Skirt elongates your legs and makes you look ten feet tall!*
The Ultimate Pencil Skirt is a great wardrobe staple – you can squeeze the pattern onto any 1.3m length of 140cm wide fabric. It’ll be your favourite go-to skirt pattern.
The pattern has four darts and a concealed zip at the centre back. The top of the skirt is finished with an interfaced waist facing, whilst the bottom of the skirt has a kick pleat to make walking just that little bit easier.
*might be a slight exaggeration!
An advanced beginner dressmaking project, we reckon if you’ve made one or two simple garments you should be able to tackle the Ultimate Pencil Skirt.
