Do I need another Magic Pencil Skirt? Probably not, but it has become like comfort food for me. I made this one in black stretch denim with less stretch than the fabrics I have used in the past for this. The result is that it does pull on over the hips, but the fit is more snug, and in my opinion, more flattering. The fabric was $3 at Super Textiles here in Dallas.
I love this pattern--it makes me look about 20 lbs lighter. Maybe that's why Pamela calls it "magic."
