Hello, I hope everyone is having a wonderful day ! It’s beautiful here in Atlanta and HOT as hell!! Perfect weather for sundresses and skirts!!!

I’ve been saying that I would make more “work appropriate” pieces since that is where i spend the MAJORITY of my time – so today I decided to wear my Margo skirt by Seamwork magazine !!!

Seamwork is a wonderful monthly subscription that provides you with 2 patterns monthly and a magazine thats filled with wonderful sewing tips , advice and resources. You can learn more about Seamwork Magzine and how to sign up in my blog post HERE.

I’m sorry the photos aren’t the best!! Unfortunately right now I have to be my own photographer. Isn’t my studio (work bathroom) glamorous ? lol.

Pattern Description: Margo is a curve-loving pencil skirt that transitions you from a day in the office to a night on the town.

Pattern Sizing: XS – 3XL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes , very much so!

Were the instructions easy to follow?  The instructions were very easy to follow. I love PDF/indie pattern makers because the instructions tend to be more “down to earth” and easy to understand.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  I did NOT like that the pattern did not call for elastic.  Thankfully I already had elastic on hand so I added it myself. Very easy fix.

Fabric Used: I used a textured Ponte .

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I already mentioned that I added elastic.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?  Oh yea, this is a staple pattern! This will probably be my go-to pencil skirt pattern for knits. 🙂


I love this pattern and would suggest it to anyone looking for a pencil skirt. I feel it can also be easily adjusted if you need a size larger than 3X or smaller than XS.
