Hi there!

I whipped up this nice pencil skirt on Sunday evening using Simplicity 1465 pattern in a great Italian cotton geometric print from Mood Fabrics online.

I swapped the invisible zipper for an exposed metal zipper for fun and to give the skirt a little edge.

This skirt was a snap to sew up and took about 2 hours. It is unlined, and I figured this fabric didn’t really require a lining, and saves time sewing. A lining could easily be added to this pattern, using the skirt pattern pieces and the facing pattern pieces and doing a little pattern drafting from there.

My new Babylock serger was a big help with the seam finishes to finish the interior seam allowances and prevent fraying. I wanted to bind the seam edges and make a Hong-Kong finish, but I didn’t have any bias binding on hand and was not about to run out to the fabric store for the second time in one day, so I just serged the edges instead.

Here are some inspiration images I have for my pencil skirt:
