I shared this a couple of weeks ago at Riley Blake Designs but today I am sharing it again here. I really am still living in these skirts. And I think they will still be cute with tights and boots for fall and winter.
Hi everyone! I think this is my all-time favorite version of the knit pencil skirt for two reasons…. they are a cinch to make and they are as comfortable as wearing yoga pants or pajama pants…but are a bit more acceptable in public 😉
Here is what you need to make one:
*Fold your fabric in half. You should have a center fold line in your fabric.
*Measure you waist and divide that number by 4. Mark that as a horizontal waistline on your FOLDED knit fabric.
* Measure your hips and divide that number by 4. Mark that as a horizontal hipline onto your FOLDED fabric.
*Measure from your waist to your knees. Put that line (measuring vertically) down from the waistline like shown below.
Now you are ready to cut out your skirt front. Cut out one more for your skirt back. You should have 2 skirt pieces—1 front and 1 back both cut on the fold.
Now put your skirt on and admire your work!
We have lots more skirt tutorials over at Simple Simon and Company that are just as easy to make! Head HERE to see more.

Now I’ve got no excuse for grocery runs in my jammies… I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for tomorrow morning that links to your tutorial:
This looks great, going to give it a try this week! Silly question though, how far apart do you mark the waistline and hipline? Is that a specific measurement or just a guesstimate?

Elizabeth, Thank you so much for this knit skirt tutorial. It is not only simple but also looks great on you. I think you are right people tend to accept skirts more than pajama pants. Thumbs up for the post!
