Pleated Pencil Skirt pattern. I've been eyeing it, and I need a perfect pencil skirt pattern. After one make I do love it. I didn't have time to make a muslin, so I had some fitting issues to deal with. This first one isn't quite perfect, but now I know what to do to the paper pattern to make it perfect. I shaved of some of the hip circumference, will need to shorten the back waist length, and need to take in the top of the waistband. I also need to make the pleat deeper so that I have more room to move. I used fabric from Miss Matatabi that I won from a giveaway earlier this year. It's gorgeous fabric, and I'm sad to say it's not available anymore.
There are so many fun colors and the triangles are great. I didn't have a matching invisible zipper so I used fuchsia. It's noticeable, but I kind of like it. When I sewed up the back pleat, I accidentally matched the triangles so perfectly that it looks like I totally meant to do it. Happy accident! I do have a problem of sewing everything out of printed fabric, so I really need to make some solid fabric pieces to match!
