When I found this pretty rose fabric at a yard sale last year I knew exactly what I need to make with it: a high waisted, big bow pencil skirt. It was just kind of meant to be and I’ve been saving it since then.
I used a pencil skirt tutorial from a sewing book I got for Christmas called Sew Everything Workshop. I love it because it has actual patterns + easy to read instructions with pictures. Of course I had to add the high waist band + the big bow.
New things I learned this time: an invisible zipper, invisible hemming + darts!I love the freedom of creating any skirt you want in any fabric. Sewing is kind of my new obsession. I have a bunch more projects in the works to show you, so stayed tuned!
I need you opinion though: how do we feel about the length? Does it need to be hemmed up to my knees? I’m still unsure
