Ultimate Pencil Skirt
A flattering high-waisted PENCIL SKIRT with a kick pleat at the back, she looks fab with the SOI Pussy Bow Blouse or Silk Cami or any shirt or jumper neatly tucked in. Designed to rise above your natural waist, the Ultimate PENCIL SKIRT elongates your legs and makes you look ten feet tall!*
The Ultimate PENCIL SKIRT is a great wardrobe staple – you can squeeze the pattern onto any 1.3m length of 140cm wide fabric. It’ll be your favourite go-to skirt pattern.
The pattern has four darts and a concealed zip at the centre back. The top of the skirt is finished with an interfaced waist facing, whilst the bottom of the skirt has a kick pleat to make walking just that little bit easier.
*might be a slight exaggeration!
We recommend medium to heavy weight woven fabrics. Medium weight wools and tartans work wonderfully, as does stretch cotton or cotton sateen. Anything with a little bit of stretch (around 3%) will make wearing your skirt extra comfortable!
