Pink Pencil Skirt

This is going to be a pretty short post I think – what can one say about a pencil skirt? Apart from ‘I really should have ironed it before I took these pictures’?! This is my last make of 2015 btw, I made it between Christmas and New Year, having cut it out a couple of months ago.

This is the pencil skirt pattern from the second Great British Sewing Bee Book. I loved the pink spotty fabric they used, and decided to make a pink skirt myself – albeit a different shade of pink!

The fabric I used was from my stash and was given to me by my friend Fran. The zip, thread and interfacing were from my stash and I got the book for free during my days of bookselling, so this is about the thriftiest make ever!

I didn’t make any changes and made the size 10. I love the double darts on the front – which you can’t really see on my skirt because of all the wrinkles!

I’ve really run out of things to say about this skirt now, so here’s another picture…..

I’m thinking I need some other colours to wear it with, but grey seems to work okay. I think it might look weird with black tights, but I could be wrong. Any thoughts?
