S5259 - Rose Velveteen Skirt

A few weeks ago I came across this gorgeous Anna Maria Horner velveteen print on fabric.com.  I debated over whether to buy it and held off.  A couple of weeks later, fabric.com had a big sale and somehow it found its way into my cart (even though it wasn't on sale--I did have a coupon code)
I think it is absolutely gorgeous.  The lighter color in the skirt is actually a very pretty light blue.  I decided that it should be a pencil skirt.  I wanted something simple so that the fabric could be the focus.  I used S5259 View D., which is quickly becoming my TNT pencil skirt pattern.  I have used it twice before: once  for this skirt. and for one I will blog about in the near future.I am also planning to use it again on a future project.
I lined the skirt with some basic polyester lining that I had in my stash.  The thing I like about this pencil skirt pattern is that is is truly a pencil skirt in that it tapers in at the bottom, and I do not have to do any alterations to it.  I cut my size and it fits--that is always a rare and nice occurrence for a pattern.  It was very quick and easy to sew up--I did it in a few hours, record timing for me.
