Floral Pencil Skirt

I finally finished this skirt. It's been a few weeks since I started this project but I have not been sewing too much.

This is a fitted pencil skirt. You can find this pattern at BurdaStyle. It's very basic and simple with one front panel and two back panels. I added a waistband and used a invisible zip extended to the waistband.


I am very happy with the fabric. It's a heavy weight knit (96% polyester and 4% spandex) with a floral print on one side. I used only 80cm long fabric (150cm width) from Spotlight.

The fitting took me some time. I made a toile first to adjust the side seams and darts to make a perfect fitted skirt pattern. I decided to drop the length above my knees because my legs are not thin or long.

As for the process, I used the Flat Felled Seams for the side seams, and it give a clean inside finish and sturdy seam.

Aside from how well it fits, the skirt is very comfortable to wear because of the stretchy material.
