DIY: Lace Pencil Skirt

After too much time spent on surf shopping
(yes, my very own term for online window shopping ,lol),
it was beyond relief to have
stumbled onto this cream lace pencil skirt.
I knew, however, that more than I needed, I wanted a black one too!
Thankfully, my frugal mode got partially activated
that hindered me from adding the black option to the shopping cart.
But the itch was annoying enough,
compelling me to find means to get what I want.  
Then the search for sewing patterns and DIY tutorials began.
I finally found this tutorial and this. Both are very easy to follow.
 The only change I added was to use my favorite pencil skirt for a blueprint
rather than taking my measurements.
I love the outcome as it catered to my desired fit and comfort.
