Alterations: Shortened length by 2 inches, graded out to a T below the waist
Here is the new Jalie Pull-on Pencil Skirt! I chose the knee length version with waistband. Options include skirt with waistband, skirt without waistband, and color-blocking. All can be made at mini or knee length. Since I am petite, I did have to shorten the knee length version to bring it above my knee. This is pretty standard for me with all patterns.
I love, love, love this waistband! It's wide, it feels comfortable, and there is elastic enclosed in the top that you can't even tell is there. This is a very quick and easy sew. Perfect for dressing up or for casual wear.
Jalie bottoms are usually a size S for me, but when it comes to a skirt, lately I'm finding I need a little more room on the back side. A size S graded out to a T was perfect for me.
My skirt fabric was a nice med/heavy knit purchased from Joann's Fabrics.
My top is also made from Jalie 2805.
