I decided to give the pencil a try when I started seeing the skirts being worn by larger size women and they looked beautiful. Since I make my own clothes, if I made it and I didn't like it, I could easily move on to another style skirt. Well, to my surprise the first 2 pencil skirts I made I feel in love with them. One fit a little more snug than what I preferred, I was told that's how they are supposed to fit, LOL!!!
No pattern was used for this skirt, I traced a RTW pencil skirt that was in my closet.
Scuba knit that was in my stash.
