I absolutely love Vogue 8882 skirt! I made it out of a soft, drapy linen blend with an ethnic print. It is so swingy and fun. It is a total fabric hog, though. I had 6 yards of fabric and even though I didn't need quite that much, I was so glad I had it. Made it easier to cut out.

I love this skirt and Angela Wolf. I want this pattern and to eventually learn how to make the stunning jacket she shows with it! I don't have a go-to pencil skirt and need one! I especially remember the first skirt I ever made as it was in Home Ec class circa 1975. It was a full circle skirt with a simple waist band and zipper in red/orange with big blue flowers and a dear friend helped me hand sew the blind hem stitch but incorrectly! By the end when my teacher made me re-do the entire hem on this full skirt, I learned that stitch and will never forget it. Nor will I ever forget this dear friend that I'm lucky enough to have till this day and we still sew and share our stories. Today we just reminisced about this very story! I told her I knew she was a keeper friend the moment she offered to help me sew! The skirt came out great in its day!

I have the perfect material to make this fringe skirt. I am finishing my doctorate in 3 weeks and would love to make this as my first project after 2 years of not having the time to sew!

As a budding weaver, this pattern is perfect for all my up and coming textiles! I would love to give handwoven fringed skirts to my 4 sisters this coming Christmas :) Thanks for the site and the give aways!

I also don't have a favorite skirt pattern yet, but would love to try the fringe skirt. My first skirt was in home ec many years ago. We made a box-pleated skirt that was SO out of fashion that I had no interest in the project and bought really cheap fabric. What a disaster. Managed to pass the class and then had a campfire to celebrate (it made great tinder)!

I don't have a go-to pencil skirt (or any skirt) yet. That's my next project, though, and I really like the look of the Fringe Skirt. The first skirt I ever made, though, was in fifth grade when we had our American History unit and spent a week pretending we were in colonial america. I (with my non-sewing mom's help), made a cotton floral print elastic waist skirt to wear. We were given "jobs" and mine was the clothmaker - someone must have known something that I didn't at the time.

I don't have a favorite skirt pattern, but usually make my own pencil skirts by taking my waist and hip measurements and adding darts. The fit is always right on. I first learned to sew in 7th grade Home Economics class and I made a dirndle elasticized waist skirt and loved it. I then made an A line skirt with a zipper in the same class. Then I proceeded to tell my parents I need a sewing machine as I love sewing. No one in my family sewed and they thought the passion would pass. It never did! I actually teach Home Economics which today is called Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) and is actually life skills. I do however, do a sewing club after school and am happy to say I have gotten many students interested in sewing. I love Angela Wolf's fringe skirt and am sure it would become my go to pattern!

My go-to pencil skirt is McCalls 3830. It is just such a good little pattern. I used it so many times that I had to buy another copy recently! I do love Angela Wolf's fringe skirt - it is very cute and I'd love to add it to my pattern collection!

I have two favorite pencil skirt patterns-Pamela's Patterns Magic Pencil Skirt and Vogue 8750. The first skirt I made was when I was in the 8th grade-many, many, many years ago. It was an A-line skirt and I remember it was brown cotton. We were required to make this style skirt in our home economics class. As far as I can remember it did fit and it required some fitting assistance from the teacher and then my grandmother from whom I inherited the sewing genes. Being short and very skinny at that time, the A line skirt was not all that flattering. I think that has also influenced me today as I hardly ever make an Aline type skirt.

I have recently been making pencil skirts for my daughter and in despair cloned a skirt that fitted her. I didn't have the luxury of playing with the fit as she lives more than three day's full driving from here. I tried out a few patterns but none worked so well as the cloned one. Now I want to make myself a skirt and am going to have to revisit the patterns for mine. I love the shape of this skirt and would love to win it.... My first skirt was made as a project in high school. It was an a-line skirt and I didn't have enough fabric to give it much length. It really, really wasn't flattering at all. I am not tall so skirts that flow out are not the best for me. I think that I need something a little more fitted. I have lived in pants for so many years that going back to skirts is rather exciting. Got my fingers crossed for this one.

Not found a great skirt pattern yet, but this could fit the bill! Sewed a skirt in High School and what a struggle with the zipper! I got a D and almost gave up sewing forever lol Sew Glad I didn't!! Very cute

I love pencil skirts--they look great, and only take a yard of fabric, so I can splurge on an expensive wool. I need a good, well fitting pattern. This one looks perfect.

I do have a McCall's pencil skirt pattern that I have been itching to get at but as of yet the skirt has not been made. As for the first skirt I ever made was my very first sewing project that my Mom helped me with. It was a royal blue, knit type fabric and I lined it with a pretty blue lining as well. It was a Rectangular, wrap skirt that buttoned on the side. This project taught me how to sew in a straight line, to stitch a lining and turn and whip stitch the opening closed and to make two button holes and sew on the buttons. A very fond memory and something special to remember my Mother for helping me learn a craft that I love. This skirt turned out so well that I earned a Girl Scout patch with it. ;-)

I haven't worn skirts for years, but have recently become interested in wearing them again. I'm a fan of classic styles with a twist and LOVE AW's fringed pencil skirt. Would love to stitch that up as my first return-to-skirts project!

I wear lots of skirts in summer (more professional and comfortable than shorts. My go-to in the past was Butterick 5390 (OOP) and now McCalls 3830. I like the shape of this one--would be cute in denim.

Oh, I love this! You don't have to put me in the drawing, because I have a zillion pencil skirt patterns. But, this inspires me to make one that has fringe. I encourage everyone to try new things like this interesting hem.

I do not have a go to pencil skirt. I've never sewn anything but practice napkins and I had accidentally sewn my fingernail to that. I'm a literal beginner. That napkin incident was 17 years ago.

I do not have the go to pencil skirt! This is almost a sin! My first skirt I had sewn was an orange a line. The was band didn't fit on the pattern right. I was heart broken. I have not made a skirt since. It I am ready to do it now some 40 something years later.

Oh, I love this simple skirt! It is classic and stylish. The first skirt I remember making was a prairie style back in the 80's. I buttoned up the front and of course had a wide ruffle around the hemline. I had to make an eyelet underskirt that peeked out the bottom. My skirt was made out of a chambray fabric and I just was so proud to wear it! I was a young mother at the time and a stay at home mom so I didn't have a lot of clothing to wear that was dressier than my usual jeans and tops. I wish I still had that skirt. It turned out really well and I received a lot of compliments wearing it. I'd really love to see how small the waistband is to my current middle-aged figure!
