Stretchy Jenny


What better project can you choose to go back to sewing than one that is quick, extremely simple and uses up scraps from another project?
Yes, instant gratification is the best. And in this case, it's this grey pencil skirt loosely based on the Jenny pattern by Burdastyle. The fabric is a medium weight jersey I had left from the super secret project I've mentioned before.

I went on a limb witht this project, because I've always been afraid that pencil skirts and bodycon skirts would be extremely unflattering for my full hips and even fuller derrière. Turns out, I really like the fit! Sometimes it really pays off to risk a little.

 

And finally, this skirt is so versatile! It can be styled in so many different ways. Now that I've overcome my fear of pencil skirts, I think the Jenny pattern will come in really handy...
