So somebody said something in my hors d'eouvres skirt topic ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17766.0 )that sparked an idea. The idea quickly became a plan, which resulted in another pencil skirt. I cannot even begin to express how much I love pencil skirts. They're so.....executive sex. Just my style  Grin.

Technical details: 12 panels (6 narrow spotted stretchy ones, 6 wide black poplin), red satin stitch on either side of every spotted panel, back lacing through ribbon loops, hem lace. It fastens with a red side zip and red button. This would probably fit an XL best. I'm a M-L and the lacing is a bit too tightened for my taste to make it fit me. Waist is just overedged, folded in, pressed, and straight stitched.

lovely lovely lovely!! And nice shape too! Can you post a pic of the zipper if there is any in it? I love to make skirts, but I hate putting in zippers.. I'm just so bad at it.. Did you post a pattern of the panels in the other post? I'll take a quick peek! x L

okay, here's how i mapped out the pieces. the piece on the right is however wide you want the skinny panels to be (mine are 2") and the length of your skirt. I had 6 of those skinny panels, so 6 x 2" = 12". Subtract that 12" from your hip and waist (hipbones. whatever) measurements. I ended up with 22.5" and 27", respectively. Divide each of those by the number of wide curvy panels you want the skirt to have. So 22.5" / 6 = 3.75" and 27" / 6 = 4.5". Line A on the left piece is your divided waist (high hip) measurement, line B is your divided hip measurement. Line C was determined by holding my knees apart a comfortable distance, measuring around them, and doing the same subtracting and dividing that was done to get lines A and B. Line D is the final hem circumference after the math. Add a half inch seam allowance and a one inch hem allowance to both pieces.

I love that movie...and that whole scene at the end of her hunger strike is so romantic. Kinky, but romantic...with him giving her the spongebath and then laying her in the grass-bed...that was awesome.

Oh wow, that is so awesome. My mom and I were just talking about making a skirt like that for me and my sister to share. Wonderful! I love the red, black and white polka dot combo. -thumbs up-

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

That is a gorgeous skirt! Sexy and sophisticated. Love the Macbeth title, too! Definitely my favorite Shakespeare play. Well, that and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Off topic. Anyway, good job! You should make quite a bit off that skirt!

You'd never guess this *cough*, but Secretary is my favourite movie. Mainstream romances are just too saccharine for me. Besides, I'm secretly a masochist. It appeals to me on a very personal level.

That being said, I wish I had the slightest idea how to make sexy blouses as well.
