Show and Tell: Animal print pencil skirt

I drafted this skirt at the same time as the sweater knit pencil skirt suit (yet to be blogged) and honestly, it’s the easiest thing in the world! I used my own measurements and took out an an and a half to accommodate the stretch in the twill, inserted an invisible zipper, a a waist facing and serged and stitched the hem and I was ready for a work day at the dress shop. It’s a high waisted skirt but I opted to use a belt for some reason. Who knows why? ha!

I’ve been working so much lately that knits are my go-to project. They’re easy to fit and I keep using TNT patters so that I know what I’m getting in the end. It’s been pretty awesome.

Have a great week! Perhaps I’ll see you on Twitter this Friday for Fabric Chat! Don’t know what the theme will be but I’m sure we can come up with something.

Hey, what’s your go-to sewing project?

    Looks great! And wow, I’d actually forgotten that Fabric Chat was going on again. I won’t be able to do this week, but maybe I can make it next week depending on how things get scheduled.
