I initially decided to give this pattern a try for Indie Pattern Month, but procrastinated as usual, so while it was finished, I didn’t get to taking photos in time.
I love a good pencil skirt, and with the added benefit of pockets, trialing this pattern was a no brainer.
I went with the size that matched my measurements, and with the exception of my usual full butt adjustment, made this as designed. I ended up turning a very narrow hem with bias tape, as I liked the final unhemmed length, which hits just below my knee.
I used a herringbone weave denim with no stretch in a faded grey colour.
Having worn this skirt at least once a week for the past few months, I can confirm it is very comfortable and has a nice fit that I like.
For when I make it again, I will narrow the waistband slightly, and also shorten the pockets a tad as they are a bit deep at the moment.
I may lengthen it in order to do a standard double fold hem, but actually really like the bias tape finish in this version.
