Pattern Review: Rebecca Page High Waisted Pencil Skirt
Rebecca Page is really doing a phenomenal job with the quick and fun patterns lately. This is the newest, the High Waisted Pencil Skirt.
There's a lot of pencil skirt patterns out there, probably because they are super quick and easy sew, but this is by far the most comfortable I've tried. This pattern comes in two lengths, mid thigh and mid calf (which also has a walking vent for, you know, ability to walk in it purposes). I made the mid thigh length, because I was trying to get it out of some fabric remnants. And I did it (barely)! It also has a low rise or high rise waist band. Naturally, I made the low rise, because what else are you going to with a pattern called a High Waisted Pencil Skirt?
Like the culottes, the most complicated part of this pattern is if you want to add some elastic to the waistband. The walking vent is also a little tricky, but as always, Rebecca Page's instructions are detailed with lots of pictures to follow along.
It is pretty form fitting, as pencil skirts are, but the best part of sewing for yourself is that you can make it to fit perfectly. I did find the waistband to be a trifle big, so I do suggest checking it on yourself before adding it to the skirt.
Overall, it's a fun pattern! If you'd like to grab a copy for yourself, you can do so here (I do make a small commission at no extra cost to you if you use that link).
Have you made this pattern? How does it compare to other pencil skirt patterns you've tried?
