Pencil Skirt Make (from GBSB book)


today I’m sharing my first make from the Great British Sewing Bee (GBSB) book that accompanies the most recent second series.

I opted first for the Pencil Skirt.


I chose a bottle green canvas fabric and instead of an invisible zip I chose a exposed black/metal zip which gave it more of a ‘me’ look.

Here are some pics of my finished skirt:

The pattern and explanations from the book are clear and easy to follow. All the projects in the book come with full scale patterns printed over 5 large sheets (so it’s easy to trace out your size and then pack away the ‘master copies’ for later.).

I’m very much looking forward to trying out another garment from this book!
