Weekends are the best time to slow down a little and enjoy life.
I like to spend mine doing things I like - Yes, doing makeup for my clients is one of those things I like.
And I've been sewing. This weekend, I sew a pencil skirt.
1. 0.5m x 1.5m cloth of choice (main body)
2. 10cm width cloth of choice (waist band)
3. 0.5m x 1.5m lining cloth (optional)
4. 1 zip (I recommend around 20cm)
5. Scissors, iron, sewing machine, needles & thread
6. 3 Hours of your time
Mine came with gold linings, and the fabric is extremely soft. Almost silk like fabric, with velvety textures on the maroon & purple patterns.
I did not follow any patterns for this skirt. I just went along and see how it turns out. But to make the process easier, you could easily take a piece of your other pencil skirts and cut the rough shape out. Leave around 5cm extra cloth around though. When you are starting out, you will make mistakes. 5cm should be enough room for errors.
I also had linings inside, but forgot to take a photo of it.Anyway, here you get it! :)
