I got on a bit of a roll, making mundane clothing for every-day wear… the black and white pinstripe pencil skirt, the printed plaid pencil skirt, the printed plaid circle skirt, and finally this purple, grey, white, and black plaid circle skirt.
The other day I posted my Bias printed circle skirt post – well there was a little bit of material left over from cutting the skirt, so I also cut a pencil skirt from the same fabric! This is pretty much exactly the same as the black and white pinstripe pencil skirt I posted earlier, but with a sewn-on elastic waistband, instead of a fold over elastic waist.
One of the great things about knowing how to sew is being able to make JUST the right item… I bought a retro-style top at a shop in black… but really wanted it in something a bit more fun – and had this leopard-print spandex in my stash. That meant knocking off the top pattern and making my own top!
