Project Restyle #2: The Pencil Skirt

top- NEX
skirt- handmade, thrifted fabric
shoes - Shoe Dazzle
You have heard of me speak of my Darling Denice, yes?
Darling Denice is my partner in crime in shopping & thrifting. She keeps me up to date with whats on the racks at all our local Goodwills. She also likes to call and scream at me on how the wind is ruining her running patterns.... aww, gotta love your friends.
The skirt is Darling Denice inspired. She called me last week to let me know that there was tweed at Goodwill. Totally random, but she lit a match and I wanted it. I counted down the minutes calmly waited for the hubby to get home to run to Goodwill and ransack them. Which I did and scored this tweed. I had NO CLUE what I was going to do with it, but I had it. I sat in my car, petting it, calling my "my precious". While in this delusional state I call and tell Denice "I now have it, but have no clue what to do with it.", then liquid sunshine pours out of her mouth "How about a pencil skirt?".
So here is the beloved pencil skirt I told you I was working on. Making the pattern was simple (or I'm getting used to making them), and I'm in love with the details, like the darts and the kick pleat (which is not shown.
My second installment for Project Restyle and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
I'll be honest and say that this pencil skirt makes me feel sexy. This pattern was made perfectly and I think I'm going to make 5 more.
