I’ve finally, finally, finally made the 1960s pencil skirt for my Dauntless jacket (Burda 7140).
|I’m so glad I made this skirt, just in time for Winter.|
After making this skirt 3 times, it was fitting that this skirt is number ‘four’.
|These are the initial 3 skirts. Simplicity 2154 is adaptable with different woven fabrics.|
I’ve really love this 1960s pencil skirt (Simplicity 2154) because it’s so versatile.

These fabrics for this outfit are from Minerva Crafts UK.

The wool fabric is a stretch woven so it’s wonderful for wearing in the office.
Comfortable; lots of movement; easy to iron; doesn’t crease much.
It’s also lined so this skirt will keep its shape for a long time.
|I’ve changed the brightness of this photo so you can see the additional pockets.|
These pockets make this skirt more work friendly for carrying keys or coins to buy coffee with.
The skirt construction method is on this previous vintage retro blog post.
|Getting the back vent right is easy with these pattern instructions.|
This Winter I’ve got some fun suit choices.
|This is going to be my ‘go-to’ suit for Winter.|
