It's interesting how the shaved head made me feel like wearing more feminine clothes again. I felt like wearing tights and a skirt the other day but turns out the only skirts I own that fit the bill (read: black and not too "girly") are SUPER short (I wear them with leggings). So I decided to make one. I looked for a suitable pattern but since I couldn't find one, I decided to design my own! And voilà!


I used remnants of the fabric i used to make these trousers. It's a medium thickness, dark grey jeans with a little stretch.

I used this recipe to make my own pencil skirt sloper, cut three pieces (two fronts), assembled and pinned it until I found a shape I liked.

I am pretty proud of my zip insertion. I had planned on using silver coloured zip and buckle but they didn't have any that I loved at the haberdashers. 

The buckle strap is a bit crappy looking upclose but no one is going to go there. :D

I used tartan bias to finish the hem edges and sewed the hem by hand. I also added pockets! I toyed with the idea of back welt pockets but they aren't that practical so I don't think I'll bother.
