I called Fort Worth home for almost 20 years; in the heart of downtown is a 35-block entertainment district home to skyscrapers, exciting nightclubs, elite restaurants, and one of the world’s top ten performance halls. Sundance Square holds a special place in my heart as I made many memories within these streets, including my first kiss. The street style is chic and Texas, with plenty of day-to-evening looks and exclusive labels mixed in with the big hair and genuinely dusty boots. Here, I’ve created a fitted yet comfortable pencil skirt worked from the top down in one nearly seamless piece, with clever shaping at the back of the skirt and knitted-in casings that create a ruched effect when laced with a length of I-cord. Wear it to the office in the morning, then cinch it up a little higher for your night on the town! Note that this skirt is meant to have quite a bit of negative ease, so don’t be put off by the tiny finished measurements!

20 1/4 (22, 25, 28½, 31 3/4) inch waist circumference, 20 3/4 inches long. Meant to be worn with 5-6 inches of negative ease.
