Long, stretchy pencil skirts (or tube skirts as they called them in the 80s) are a hot trend right now. Since they’re stretchy, I thought of resurrecting Susan’s elastic waisted skirt tutorial and adjusting it to make a stretchy pencil skirt. It was super easy, and took only 15 minutes to make. Including a short chocolate break.
For these final product images above, I teamed up with photographer Kate Skogen of JetKat Photo
I love this polka dot stretchy jersey print I found and think the skirt is perfect paired with some booties, a button down chambray shirt, and a comfy cardigan for fall.
The length of the skirt is key! It should hit right below the knee. Not shorter, not longer. That’s why making your own is great. You can make it the perfect length for your body.
Sweater is Zara
Chambray shirt is thrifted
Boots are Sam Edelman c/o Tog and Porter
