Burda 05/2012 #136: perfect pencil skirt in grey knit

me-made-March day 17!

Nothing super-fancy today, just another skirt from the “Perfect Pencil Pattern” I worked on a while back. This one is in a knit fabric, the remnants left over from my Lekala cowl dress. I didn’t have enough fabric left for a centre back seam, zipper and vent…and frankly, a thick knit fabric doesn’t need it.

Instead, I cut the back on the fold, sewed the back darts, and made a casing around the top (pic below). Leave a 1″ gap in the casing to thread in a piece of thin elastic, sew the gap closed, and you’re done!
