I sewed this one today.

This one I made a while back. I haven't had a chance to wear it yet.http://nvafashions.blogspirit.com/album/finished_works/pict0941.3.jpghttp://nvafashions.blogspirit.com/album/finished_works/pict0944.3.jpg
I used my own pattern for both of them.
Here's a tutorial but it's pretty basic and can be applied to any skirt pattern that you make. Any questions be not afriad to ask.Step one: MeasureMeasure your:
-The area around where you want the skirt to stop
-Length from waist to hips
-Hips to where the skirt stops
-Waist to where the skirt stops
Divide the Hips, Waist, and area where the skirt stops by four. Use those numbers to create the pattern. The pattern is just one out of three (if you cut the pattern wrong then it'll be four) pieces of the skirt. When you make the waist band don't divide the pattern.Step two: Cutting out the patternFor the front:
Place the pattern on the fold line of the fabric so that it comes out as one piece instead of two.For the back:
Cut out two separate pieces of the pattern.Step three: Sewing
Sew all the pieces together. I used heavy interfacing for the waist band. I basted first to check the size. There you have it, you very own pencil skirt! Give your self a pat on the back!
