|Dress it down with a sweater.|
Here's the lesson ladies...just make your skirt the tiniest bit more snug than you think you should, pair it with a pretty blouse, cinch your waist with a great belt, and add just a bit more colour to your lips than you normally would and va-va-voom!
You will feel like a 60's bombshell that just stepped off the Mad Men set. (I know I don't have the curves of a real '60's bombshell, but I still feel good in this skirt~)
It's surprising what you can do with a metre of $2.00 fabric from the bargain bin isn't it?!?!
It's just some kind of wool gabardine but I love the line of taupey brown line in it, it makes it so much more wearable with other colours.
I used this pattern from Vogue but like I said above, a pencil skirt is a pencil skirt, any pattern will probably look almost exactly the same as this one.
You can see some other pieces I made from this pattern here and here.
