I bought this fabric whilst on holiday in Shenzhen, China intending to make up a holiday-appropriate version of Delia Creates Pleated Pencil Skirt up in time for Christmas. Unfortunately, I didn't get round to it until after the full festive period of Christmas and the Lunar New Year had passed! No matter though, as I fully intend to whip out this skirt every time some kind of festive event rolls round.
I had some problems with the fitting of the skirt as my fabric was extremely stretchy (a lot stretchier than I imagine the pattern was designed for!). I also opted to shift the zip to the centre back instead of at the side, which did make things a little more complicated. Of course it didn't help that I had lost my seam ripper and had to unpick mistakes using a large fabric scissors (it was a nightmare) - no matter though, because I now have my poinsettia pencil skirt! Now I'm wondering if I can sneak this into my office wardrobe on a work day...
