I made this out of a medium weight stretch cotton twill that has a slight stripe to it. Sassy!

Alright, this tutorial is too good. I can NEVER find pencil skirts that fit right at stores... I just wish I could figure out how to use my sewing machine :(

Okay, this makes me want to wear skirts. Or, maybe just make them.

Now all I need is fabric, a sewing machine, and everything else you listed! :lol:

I personally wouldnt hand sew it. I like Mine TIIIGHHHTTTT and I'm sure itd bust a lot easier (but I tend to bust my machine seams too :roll: ). But if you made it loose enough I dont see why you couldnt hand sew it. And its relatively easy. Once you get the pieces drafted its a piece of cake!
