Black Peeptoes: Blowfish Festival Wedges, DSW
Amongst the garment sewing world, skirts are generally one of the easier types to sew yourself. Pencil skirts, for whatever reason, are difficult for me to get right the first time around. Usually it's the tush's fault - the skirt is either too narrow or too wide there so I keep going back in with a seam ripper. Or the bottom is too wide so that it's less of a pencil and more of a triangle. I think it ultimately comes down to practice and knowing my own measurements. Hmm, looks like I rambled a bit here...sorry!
I am pretty happy with the way this particular skirt came out and I do really like the texture / pattern. I also made a lace print version and a plaid wool version that I'll post OOTDs with later.
