Due to its versatility, the pencil skirtlooks great with any thing. Thanks to it, you can realize many unique images of different styles. However, there is a problem - in shops it is sometimes difficult to pick up a pencil skirt, suitable for all parameters and the required size. The best solution to this problem will be mastering the sewing yourself. In addition, the pencil skirt can be considered one of the simplest products for beginner needlewomen. We choose the material on a pencil skirt. The main criterion here probably should be the elasticity of the fabric, ease of processing, the lack of flowability. Such parameters are characteristic for flax, gabardine, dense jersey, kotona, costume and crepe fabrics. We sew a skirt-pencil. The pattern borrowed from the magazine is unlikely to satisfy the real needlewoman, so you probably want to design the pattern yourself. To do this, you must first measure the necessary parameters: the length of the skirt (DL), the hip circumference (OB), and the waist size (OT). After removing the measures, we proceed to create a pattern. There are many ways to design patterns that are easy to find in books or the Internet. Choose one of them and build a pattern. When finished with drawing patterns,go to the cutting. We begin to cut out from the transfer belt. Bend the material in half, face inward, using pins to fix the pattern, draw a shallow and cut out. In the same way we mirror two times the cloth of the rear part, but without folding the fabric. Leave the seams for the seams, zippers and bottom bends. Remember that you still need to find a belt. Elements are processed from the top to the bottom. First sweep the darts, sweep the belt to the top edge. Try on the skirt and determine the size of the lateral constrictions. If everything is OK, take out darts, stash andsweep the side skirts of the skirt, handle the zipper, the slot, the top cut. The bottom is sewn in the very last moment. Next iron the product and sew the eyelets. That's the whole process of sewing a skirt-pencil. There is an option to create a pattern of a pencil skirt, in which there are no side seams. In the above variant, because of the slit cut, the skirt had 3 seams: 1 at the back and 2 at the sides, but sometimes one vertical seam at the back is sufficient. Side seams will be present, but only up to eight centimeters below the hips. As in the first variant, the pattern is based on the pattern of a straight double-breasted skirt. After completing the paper patterns on the front and back, gently cut the pieces one from the other and duplicate them. In the process of transferring patterns to the material, add the details as in the illustration: Tips for wearing a pencil skirt. The traditional option - a pencil skirt to the knees.
