Blue pencil skirt – Sewing a zipper

Today I made a baby blue pencil skirt – an achievement because it’s the first time I sewed a zipper.  I made it by tracing another pencil skirt, and then trying it on and modifying it before I sewed the hem on the top and bottom.

I used this video from Professor Pincushion for the zipper:

And I used this video for the kick pleat, with a modification:

My modification was that I didn’t sew the two L-shaped pieces together at the end – instead, I kind of hemmed them each on the inside, and only sewed the top together.  That way, it will be easier to walk.
