Back to School Cambie" made last year) and this pattern (Amazing Fit, Simplicity 2475). For alterations, I added a full lining and reduced the waistband to about 1".
So as the post title implies, there are two more pencil skirts coming. Number 2 will be a Britex project, with a couple of tutorials. That skirt is also done (spoiler alert: in this fabric!) and I'm not sure I could be any more proud of how it turned out.
The third pencil skirt will be the first project due in my Patternmaking II class! The style is a high waisted, lined skirt with a kick pleat and the flat pattern is nearly finished with the "muslin" due this Thursday. I plan to sew it in a fabulous wool plaid, which is not at all a muslin, but since I am doing all my pattern making to my own measurements this semester, I'm breaking out the good stuff!
It was not my master plan to make three skirts in a month, it all just happened that way. But all three skirts are remarkably different, despite all falling into the "pencil skirt" category, and definitely will fill some serious gaps in my professional wardrobe.
Anyone else making a pencil skirt (or three) this month? Anyone else thrilled that they don't have a toilet in their sewing room?!
