hey! i have one of those modified pencil skirts! mine is faux-chanel looking. i bought it at tar-je` so i could use it as a pattern to make more skirts from what i find at goodwill
im so sneaky.
oh, and if you make a circle skirt, make a shorter one, as opposed to a longer ankle length one. they look supersupercute. AND you can find the pattern in one of those poodle skirt patterns from simplicity or whatever.
