Sinclair Patterns has done it again! This time, I was lucky enough to be selected to test their newest pdf pattern release: the Elle Panel Pencil Skirt. This exquisite feminine skirt flatters curves and entices the eyes with its ability to use panels and color blocking to compliment its wearer’s assets. It comes in a range of sizes from 0-22, but might soon be available in sizes up to 5X (if rumor from the designer becomes reality). The pdf pattern comes with each size available in a multi-sized and layered pattern, organized into the dimensions of petite (for 5’1″-5’3″), regular (for 5’4″-5’6″), and tall (for 5’7″-5’9″). This pattern is meant for either a knit fabric as a pull-on skirt, or woven fabric with an invisible zipper.
I tested a size 16, using both a stable knit and a woven fabric, in that I used a flocked scuba fabric from Mily Mae Fabrics (https://milymaefabricshop.com) with side panels in faux leather. I made sure to make my waistband out of the scuba, to provide the stretch needed to get the skirt over my hips. I LOVE the ingenious built-in kick pleat in the back of the skirt. It was so easy, yet adds that additional touch of fashion and sophistication. As usual, I LOVED the way that the Sinclair Patterns pattern came together to form the garment that I made. It was quick, easy to sew, and so easy to understand.
