Warning – this isn’t my favorite remake of all time. It was my first shot at a pencil skirt.
I took one of my boyfriend’s button up shirts that he was going to get rid of.
I bought some gray bias tape from Walmart too.
Step 1: Cut the skirt out using one of my other (thrift store!) skirts.
Step 2: Sew up the sides.
Step 3: Pin and pray!!!!! I used black thread because A) I thought the contrast would be kinda cool and B) I was too lazy to take it out of my sewing machine.
Here’s a close up of the results.
Step 4: More pinning (and less praying). I didn’t want to hem the bottom, so bias tape the the rescue!
It’s not the most flattering thing in the world … but it was a good effort.
