Description

This classic, unlined pencil skirt will have you looking sharp whenever you wear it. The skirt includes side panels, a back yoke detail, and a back walking vent. Because it has no seams, the front panel allows use of almost any patterned fabric, including bold prints. View A is just-above-the-knee length with straight-cut side panels. View B ends just below the knee and features bias-cut side panels. Fit can be easily customized using the side-panel seams.

Suggested Fabrics

Suitable for light- to medium-weight woven fabrics like twill, canvas, linen, denim, wool suiting, and faux leather. Woven fabrics with some stretch are ideal for this style.

Notions

Coordinating thread, contrasting thread for topstitching (optional), 9" invisible zipper, lightweight woven fusible interfacing, 1 1/4 yards of 1/4" twill tape to stabilize the waistband, 1 1/2 yards of seam tape or ribbon to finish the hem.
