WOOL PENCIL SKIRT

ISSUE 26

With its sleek silhouette and classic zigzag print, this gorgeous pencil skirt is a sophisticated nod to the sixties. Add some vintage va-va-voom by pairing it with a classic black top, red lipstick and a pair of black-rimmed glasses, or embrace a more modern approach with the addition of a polka dot top and a pair of colourful, eye-catching ankle socks. With its reinforced waistband, invisible zipper and subtle darts, this calf-length, fully lined skirt can be crafted from light- to heavy-weight wool depending on your preference – we used this thick, soft wool blend from The Fabric Store for maximum cold-weather cosiness. Download our free pattern (created especially for us by Pattern Runway) and pencil in some time on those long, dark evenings to make yourself one of these in every colour. Winter, we’re ready and waiting!
