Finished Project: Pleather Pencil Skirt

I got a thing for pleather leather!

I actually finished the skirt back in June and wore it for my birthday but I didn’t blog about it. I recently took it out to wear and it had this huge hole on the left buttocks.

I was hoping I could stitch it up without having to take the whole panel off, but as you can see, the repair looks shotty, so I pulled out my handy dandy seam ripper and got to ripping!

I drafted this pattern based on my measurements by following a tutorial online (I can’t remember which one). It was quite simple and it’s a great pattern to have on hand.

Looking at the back, I can tell that the back darts need to be moved slightly outward, away from the zipper. Speaking of zipper, look at that beauty! The seams line up too!

Perfect fit for a perfect look! 🙂 Thanks for reading!
