Self Drafted Midi Pencil Skirt
This is the EASIEST skirt to make! I folded my fabric measure my waist plus 4" from the fold and marked a straight line. I am working with a striped stretchy DK so negative ease is needed for the right fit. I cut the straight line sewed it up and that became my CB seam. I then tried it on so I could see if I needed to peg it more at the hem (that is the key to a midi skirt like this) I marked where the skirt hit the bottom of my butt and marked it and then took it in 1/4" from hem up to the mark.
I added the elastic with the serger because I need it to stretch with the fabric when pulling this sucker on, lol then I folded the elastic in a tacked it at the CB seam and a tack on each side. Sewed the hem 1.5" by hand and was done, I think it took 30 min total, LOL
