When it comes to pencil skirts, I will never have too many. Not only are pencil skirts the easiest piece of clothing to wear, but also one of the easiest pieces to make and fit. This skirt was made with a ponte knit I picked up at Joann’s using the same method used to make this with the following changes.Cut a waistband 1.5″ wide.
The top was made with old faithful Vogue V8840 with the following alterations:
Added 8″ to the bottom sleeve
Added sleeve cuffs made by cutting two pieces of fabric 3 1/2″x9″ sew the two pieces of fabric together leaving the 3 1/2″ sides open. Fold the cuff in half and sew the open end to the end of the sleeve.
Removed the breast darts and added darts to the shoulder
Removed 3″ from the hem of the pattern
Added a 1.5″ non rolling elastic to the hem
