This very high waisted skirt is probably not the best choice of pattern to make after lots of Christmas overindulgence! I have believe it or not needed a plain black pencil skirt in my wardrobe for some time, had a remnant in my stash and wanted to try a new pattern.
I know I still have 4 of my 7 planned dresses still to make, but I'm a little dressed out for the moment you know. This was a super easy pattern to put together, the only odd thing is that the yoke pieces are interfaced but the skirt is unlined. I don't like interfacing showing on the inside so I lined the yoke section.
Now it may be my peculiar figure but this really is a high waisted skirt, it finishes a good 4 inches above my natural waist. I left off the belt loops because it is unlikely I will wear this with a tucked in top and it certainly isn't going to slip down my hips! However I am really pleased with the end result, a skirt with built in spanx effect! Just don't wear it for big dinners out!
Sorry the pictures are not massively useful, black is so difficult to show properly.
