Back to where it all began... another Hot Patterns Pencil Skirt

A little over a year ago I posted my first pattern review: the Hot Patterns Pencil Skirt.

I made another one specifically to go with the pair of shoes I am wearing. I got these really cute shoes at Bakers at least five years ago. I've never worn them because I didn't have anything that really goes with them. They are tan heels with brown trim. So I thought a pencil skirt was in order- brown to pick up the brown trim. I know that the pictures don't do them justice.

I made the skirt the same way. Except this time I took in an additional 1/4" on each side. This skirt is made out of a stretch cotton sateen.

And I don't think I am done with this pattern yet. It is very quick and easy and a very flattering style, even for a woman with curves. Next time I need to do a fun print or something to mix it up.



  1. That is a really cute skirt! Love the shoes too

  2. I love the idea of making something to go with the shoes! Skirt looks great too.

  3. That can really be dressed up and down. A great staple for any wardrobe.

  4. Hi there - just found your blog via Pattern Review after buying a couple of summer top patterns - one is NL6705, which I see you've made up a couple of times before with great success! I love peasant style tops too, so will be checking out all of your reviews for other patterns to try! Jen x

  5. I just made my first HP pencil skirt in black! I love it. I'm a beginner and it wasn't too tough for me. I like getting the experience of practicing my zipper skills on something not so complicated. Good job, it looks great with those shoes!
