DIY: Another Striped Pencil Skirt

    |
Striped pencil skirt day and night {who is that girl mo?}
I decided to make yet another pencil skirt but with vertical stripes this time. I used a black and white stretch fabric with wide stripes. This is the 4th pencil skirt that I have made and I love how versatile it is so here's a day to night look on how I'd style this skirt.
Supplies:
fabric
elastic
measuring tape
chalk/marking pen
scissors
pins
sewing machine
  • Measure the smallest part of your waist. Divide by 2 and this will be your waist measurement.
  • Measure the length that you want for the skirt beginning at the smallest part of your waist.
  • Fold the fabric in half lengthwise.
  • Mark the waist and length measurements on the fabric with the chalk. I marked 14 in and 30 in respectively.
  • Use a ruler to draw straight lines and cut along lines. You should have the exact fitting of your skirt.
  • With the right sides of fabric facing each other, stitch a seam down the long side of the fabric. This will be the back of the skirt.
  • Place the elastic around your waist and pull snugly. Mark and cut. My elastic was about 24 inches.
  • Stitch the raw edges of the elastic together creating your waistband.
  • Pin the elastic around the top edge of the skirt. Make sure it is on the right side of the fabric.
  • Stitch the elastic onto the skirt edge using a Serger or zigzag stitch.
  • Fold the elastic towards the wrong side twice. Tack the elastic into place or stitch around the bottom edge of the elastic.
  • Hem the bottom of the skirt 1 - 1 1/2 inches.
