Pencil skirts are a wardrobe staple for so many women, and flatter almost every body type. They can be easily dressed up or down, and a pleated hem is a perfect way to take your basic pencil skirt up a notch!
- pencil skirt pattern of choice
- skirt fabric (add 1/2yd to fabric requirements for pleats)
- inverted pleat fabric – 3/4yd – pictured is a neon pink bottomweight sateen
- other supplies required per pattern instructions such as zipper, interfacing, etc
- measuring tape
- thread (one spool to match skirt fabric, and one spool to match inverted pleat fabric if contrast thread is desired at hem), pins, scissors
