This crazy-fast and fun to sew ruched knit pencil skirt is soft, stretchy and a step up from your
ordinary Pencil Skirt. The skirt has six ruched panels that shirr the skirt from top to bottom, and is double-lined for a smooth inside with no hem finishes. The skirt has a stretch fabric “yoga” waistband.

When choosing your size: Go smaller! This skirt is meant to be snug fitting with negative ease (meaning the skirt is smaller on the hanger than it is on you) - the ruching is meant to stretch between pan the tighter the better. The ruching should be stretched between panels with lots of negative ease as far down the skirt as possible (if you have thinner lower thighs/calves it may not stretch as much between the panels as you go down the skirt) and then that ruching can be used to gather up areas we want to disguise - oradd extra folds to accentuate the positive.


This fun skirt looks fabulous with a raglan tee and a puffy vest with flat Chelsea booties or dress it up for work with heels and a jacket. It’s date-night-worthy with a fun graphic tee and your favorite leather jacket. The ruching and stretch waistband made in soft rayon/lycra jersey means you can go ahead and have that slice of pie! This skirt is divine in soft, stretchy fabrics like rayon/lycra jersey, or haatchi knit solids or rayon/lycra or poly/lycra print jersey.

It's available in sizes 4-22, hips 33" - 50" and as you can see, it looks amazing on everyone we put it on!
