Simple Pencil Skirt DIY

Thrifted - DIY Pencil Skirt

My mom bought me my own sewing machine for Christmas and last week I broke it in by making a simple pencil skirt. This is a very easy DIY - my sewing skills aren't exactly stellar so if I can do it, you can too! You will need a metre of stretchy fabric (no zippers here!), matching thread, pins, scissors, and a sewing machine. Please mind my Da Vinci like instructions, I have yet to master my Bamboo tablet.


You could also use elastic in the waist. Go here for a great tutorial. For more info on straight darts go here.

I love how easy it was to make this skirt. I'm a big booty gal with a smaller waist so I'm a big fan of pencil skirts but I have a hard time finding ones that are as long as I would like them to be. I plan on making another skirt with a zipper closure in the back. More on that later!
