Squiggly Skirt

All I have left to do is to hem the lining, so I declared that it was time to take pictures. Nothing fancy. I kept with the office setting (our home office, very, very well organized, ha!) since it's a pencil skirt.


Unfortunately, I don't love it. I think it looks okay in the photo, but I'm not sure about the silhouette. I think I'm more of a A-line skirt or gathered skirt kinda gal - something with more volume.

And I really don't like where it sits on my waist. Too high. I think I must be used to waistbands sitting lower down. I feel squished in this one and not because it's too tight. Maybe I have a short torso relative to my height? I don't know.


Well, this was mainly a learning skirt anyway. I'll still wear it, but I don't think it'll be a favorite. In other news, I used the serger again last night during class, and I didn't muck it up this time!

  1. It looks good, such great fabric. I know what you mean though about being used to low waists. I usually wear low waisted skirts and then feel uncomfortable in a hgher waisted one.

  2. Ok, I am in love with this skirt. I don't really notice the shape because I'm so awed by the fabulous fabric. I understand the waist fitting issue - I'm used to low waists as well, but I've found that higher waisted skirts are great for the too short button downs.

  3. It is true that all too often my RTW shirts are a little too short...why is that? I like the fabric so I hope I get used to the waist. I could try the tuck-in style; I almost never do that. Hmmm.

  4. :) I still really like this fabric and it looks fabulous with the black top! I have a real aversion against waistbands going higher than my bellybutton, too!

  5. I think it looks absolutely wonderful, and I would wear it a lot! But I do have a soft spot for pencil skirts... I love the punchiness of that bold print worn with a simple black top. Very chic!

  6. Oooh, I love your skirt, it looks good in the photo, but the important thing is that you are comfortable. Have you experimented with having the top tucked in for a different look? Maybe that could change the way you feel about it?

    I am all about high- waisted skirts and trousers, and especially in the winter when it is cold, they give an extra bonus layer keeping my belly nice and warm! :-)

  7. I really like your skirt and I think the silhuette suits you very well. But I have to admit that I don't own any pencil skirts because I don't feel comfortable in them either. ;)
