Earlier this month we released our Ultimate Pencil Skirt Kit out into the world and wow, what a response we received! We’ve had some very funny looks trekking down Clapham High Street to the post office with our huge Santa sacks full of kits. We can’t wait to see your tartan beauties cropping up!
Since the kit was released we’ve had loads of requests for the pattern on its own. (What, do some people not like tartan??) Initially this was not part of the plan but we have had so much interest that we thought why not!
So please welcome the Ultimate Pencil Skirt PDF pattern!
A flattering high-waisted pencil skirt with a kick pleat at the back, she looks fab with our Pussy Bow Blouse or our Silk Cami or any shirt or jumper neatly tucked in. Designed to rise above your natural waist, the Pencil Skirt elongates your legs and makes you look ten feet tall!*
*might be a slight exaggeration!
The Ultimate Pencil Skirt is a great wardrobe staple – you can squeeze the pattern onto any 1.3m length of 140cm wide fabric. It’ll be your favourite go-to skirt pattern.
The pattern has four darts and a concealed zip at the centre back. The top of the skirt is finished with an interfaced waist facing, whilst the bottom of the skirt has a kick pleat to make walking just that little bit easier.
We designed this pattern with an ambitious beginner in mind. If you’ve made a skirt or a simple top before, you can totally tackle this. We reckon if you’ve made one or two garments you should be able to tackle the Ultimate Pencil Skirt. The instruction booklet comes fully illustrated to help you along. We know you can do it!

We are releasing the pattern in downloadable PDF format only. Sorry to all of you who hate cutting and sticking – I know there are a lot of you but we promise she’s worth it. The pattern only takes up 28 pages, so you’ll be whizzing it together in no time.
