Studio Collection Ruched Pencil Skirt - Copy Shop Version


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.
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 knitsolids or rayon/lycra or poly/lycra print jersey.

This quick-to-make ruched pencil skirt in two lengths - knee length 20" and midi length 26"-  is a fun sewing project that teaches you to sew with stretch elastic on stretch fabric. This technique is also used on elastic waistbands and swimwear.

The skirt is entirely self-lined and made in the recommended soft and stretchy rayon/Lycra is incredibly comfortable to wear. This skirt requires negative ease (it's smaller than you are) to stay up, and has a stretch fabric waistband at the top. You'll need to make this at least one size smaller than you usually wear (for example, if you measure a 12 in Christine Jonson patterns based on the size chart, make a 10). It is form fitting, yet flattering, with it's many rows of ruching to hide any lumps and bumps. 

Sizes from 4 to 22, hip measurements from 33" to 50"
