This is my first attempt at the Pencil Skirt pattern by Sew Over It. I actually started it several months ago, but I had a very frustrating day of sewing and so it’s been languishing on the naughty step since then. I think the problem was that I had in my mind that I would finish the skirt in a single session, and I got really annoyed at myself when I couldn’t.

I had a vague thought of making a matching jacket, but this fabric frays easily and is a little tricky to work with, so I’m pretty sure that I will be abandoning that particular harebrained scheme.

I’m halfway through the zip insertion at the moment. Hoping to finish the skirt soon as it would be a nice spring work garment.

Pattern: Pencil Skirt from Sew Over It

Fabric: Joseph Boucle, also from SOI
