Butterick 5466 Pencil Skirt

This skirt, Butterick 5466 view D, is just fantastic and easy peasy to make. I chose it because I am tired of making skirts with darts in the front that end up with little bumps. My stomach is relatively flat so there is not really much for the fabric to curve around. I am really happy with the fit. It is probably the most well fitting garment that I have ever made. It is also incredibly comfortable. Not to mention it goes perfectly with my vintage 50's style. Win all around!

Fabric: Heavy weight 100% cotton home dec gingham fabric from my mother in law
Notions: Zipper and thread from my stash
Pattern: Butterick 5466 from my stash. I made a straight size 12 and then just fitted the princess seams on the muslin.
Cost: FREE!
