I used the fabric I purchased from A Spool of Thread when I was in Vancouver. It's gorgeous stretch denim, but it stretches on the lengthwise grain instead of crosswise. I was confused by it at first because I've never seen fabric like that before. But I decided it would be perfect for a pencil skirt. Having the stretch lengthwise allows for comfortable sitting!
Here's my "invisible" hot pink zipper. I love invisible zippers with a pop of colour!

So... this was supposed to be a peplum pencil skirt. Thus, I didn't draft a waistband and made a facing instead. It turned out I hated the peplum. There's no way I was going to even try putting it on the skirt. To me it looks like a clown collar. Maybe it was the medium weight fabric that lacked a soft drape; maybe it was the polka dots. I just couldn't get clown collar out of my head. And so the peplum will never be. I can't stand looking at it. I'm putting it in the garbage as soon as I'm done typing this. The good thing is that it was a valuable experience. I may make a peplum skirt with a softer fabric and absolutley no polka dots! Otherwise, I would also make a waistband. That way it adds some waist definition and just looks like it's actually finished!
I'm just going to enjoy sitting in my comfy stretchy pencil skirt!
