The fabric is a really lovely stretch cotton courtesy of the Fabric Godmother (thanks Josie!) and the pattern is New Look 6000. I made the skirt a bit wider at the hemline, since I've decided to be a bit more honest with myself about what style of clothes I'll actually get the most wear out of. Pencil skirts may look pretty hot, but I don't look too hot running for a bus at half a mile an hour with my knees locked together, or sat at my desk wriggling around trying to get comfy. So yes, wider hem it is!
And I love it so!
