Pencil Skirt – Progress Report

So I’ve been working away on the toile for my pencil skirt.  The waistband on the first version proved to be too high for my body and gave all sorts of fitting problems. Once it was removed the rest of the skirt looked much better but had some excess fabric across my tummy.  I cut down the waistband to a straight 4cm all round my body and pulled up the front of the skirt by 1cm and now I am ready to cut the fashion fabric.  Wish me luck!

  1. Looking good! Aren’t muslins a pain to do? But so useful. I agree, it’s better for you without being so high in the waist.

    By the way, I have just answered your questions about online buying in the comments on the last post (in case you don’t realise).
