The Ultimate Pencil Skirt


Create the ultimate pencil shaped skirt whether in stretch or woven fabric, this pattern has instructions for both.

The stretch version is very easy to make whereas the non-stretch requires some sewing knowledge.

Fabric suggestions

Suitable for all light to medium weight stretch or rigid fabrics.

  • Silver PU from Ditto - also available in a gold colourway, this PU fabric is very easy to make up in the stretch version.
  • The pinstripe shows the back detail of the woven version. 


Pencil Skirt sewing pattern review
Jill, Austria

This is the Maker's Atelier pencil skirt that I made out of some spare upholstery fabric I had.

I've also made it in denim, black woolen fabric to wear with the Big Easy Top and another stretchy black fabric. It's such a good basic piece to have in the wardrobe, especially when worn with boots in winter and always looks smart whether with a floppy jumper or dressier blouse. As always, the Maker's Atelier patterns can be made numerous times because the quality of the paper is so good.
