Pencil Skirt Revisited

I managed to finish my skirt pretty quickly after my last post as I was dying to see the finished project, and i'm so thrilled with the way it turned out. I hope you like it!
So after I attached the waistband, I then fitted the zipper...

After this I turned the skirt to the wrong side and started to sew up the centre back seam, leaving about 4 inches at the bottom for my slit.

I then neaten the seam by zigzagging each edge, and then hand stitched them down so they would stay flat. 

I then hemmed the bottom by hand, and that was it!

Here's the finished skirt...

After sewing this I remembered another famous pencil skirt from one of my favourite movies..

I love the white top Grace is wearing with hers!


  1. Pretty! I have almost exactely the same skirt, but mine is from Zara. Good job! :)

  2. Gorgeous skirt! It looks awesome on you!
