Sew Over It Sew Over It Ultimate Pencil Skirt
£15.00

A flattering high-waisted pencil skirt with a kick pleat at the back, she looks fab with our Pussy Bow Blouse or our Silk Cami or any shirt or jumper neatly tucked in. Designed to rise above your natural waist, the Pencil Skirt elongates your legs and makes you look ten feet tall!*


The Ultimate Pencil Skirt is a great wardrobe staple – you can squeeze the pattern onto any 1.3m length of 140cm wide fabric. It’ll be your favourite go-to skirt pattern.

The pattern has four darts and a concealed zip at the centre back. The top of the skirt is finished with an interfaced waist facing, whilst the bottom of the skirt has a kick pleat to make walking just that little bit easier.

*might be a slight exaggeration!

Fabric Suggestions
We recommend medium to heavy weight woven fabrics for the Ultimate Pencil Skirt. Medium weight wools and tartans work wonderfully, as does stretch cotton or cotton sateen. Anything with a little bit of stretch (around 3%) will make wearing your skirt extra comfortable! Check our online shop selection for fabrics we’ve picked specifically for the pattern.

Fabric Requirements
The Ultimate Pencil Skirt comes in UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
