Fitted Turtleneck Crop Top/ Pencil Skirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that I could create and give her the look that she wanted site unseen and she left very pleased! What advice would you give someone starting this project? As I mentioned already, I made the skirt using Mimi G Style, Knit pencil skirt tutorial. The first time I made this skirt for myself, I thought my hips were too wide to just go by my waist measurements. I learned not to reinvent the wheel. Instructions are instructions for a reason. Mimi also says in her tutorial to choose a knit that's not so thin. This style skirt has zero ease, so the thinner the fabric, the more see through it will be. I would also advise letting the skirt hang ,as I did in one of the photos, before hemming it, This will allow the skirt to stretch out and fall so you'll have the exact length you desire. If not the skirt will grow on you.

What you will need

  • Not sure of the exact contents of this fabric
  • but it feels like a rayon-lycra knit. It has a 4-way stretch and a divine feel to it.
