Penelope pencil skirt: Fabric Options

Main Fabric

A pencil skirt is a rather formal cut, and most commonly is made in a suiting material. In other words, a fine wool. More casual options among medium weight fabrics include cotton or denim.

Using a fabric with some stretch will make it easier to get a comfortable fit and give you some more room to move about as pencil skirts fit rather tight. Scuba is often seen in pencil skirts as it is firm, has body but also stretches.

Lining Fabric

The lining fabric needs to be light, and allow the body to slide over it easily. You also don’t want something to thick as this will be constricting. Silky fabrics are the go to choice as they are lightweight and slippery.
