fun to make, fun to wear!
So basically all the credit for the pattern and sewing instructions go to this http://mademoisellechaos.blogspot.com/2010/06/make-wish-tutorial-i-ominous-pencil.html wonderful incredible sewing magician...Uh...I added the straps instead of a zipper though...
This was just something to occupy myself with all night while the norms slept..
I apologize for the horrible formatting of steps and the pictures for them were taken after the skirt was done so sorry about that too.... ._.

  • How to make a pencil skirt. Fancy Fancy~ Pencil Skirt! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Basically, I cut two pieces of fabric that were 3x8 inches,
    I just used some scraps from my lining fabric.
    sew them in half and one of the raw edges,
    then turn them inside out,

    Step 2

    fold the raw edges under so they're inside the tube of fabric you just made,
    Sew them to the skirt, A good 2 inches back and sew in a square by hand
    You can add something decorative here,
    I added a little bow on the top one c:

    Now, for this part I used pop tabs...because I'm cheap and impatient... ._.
    you could use a real buckle but I would suggest making the straps thicker then, because they hardly stay for me in the tiny pop tab holes..

    Basically, I just tried the skirt on and pulled the straps to how tight I would want the skirt to be,
    then marked that
    You wanna make sure you have enough fabric to overlap at the waist so your underwear isn't showing.. >_> I probably should have mentioned that...

    so then I took some random thread I had laying around and sewed the pop tabs on, BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT!!
    Only sew in the center bar.

  • Step 5

    Lace up your skirt and look fabulous!
