This skirt is definitely my favourite make of all time! Every time I wear it, I got tons of compliments. One time, someone even asked me if it was Vera Wang…


Crazy! Talk about receiving the best compliment!

In my opinion, the thing that makes this skirt awesome is the fabric. It’s got so much texture and volume to it and just looks so sophisticated. It’s definitely a special occasion type of piece – perfect for the holidays. I’ve tried to dress it down, but it just doesn’t work. I mean, you can throw a badass leather jacket on with it, but it’s still going to look dressy…Definitely not a bad thing though!

One tip if you’re thinking about using a fabric like this: don’t hem the edge, leave it raw! it’s one less step to do and totally unnecessary because the fabric does NOT unravel. Plus, hemming it would just make it look chunky.

    • I don’t have a pencil skirt but this makes me want one! I reentcly made some arm chair covers for my grandparents using upholstery fabric and the thickness was driving me crazy. Why won’t it lay flat when I iron it?!Your skirt looks great, I just don’t know if that fabric and I can get along with each other.Thanks for sharing!
