Have you seen the movie Ocean's 13? Do you remember Ellen Barkin in this movie? How could you forget, she was stunning! That figure and those amazing body-skimming dresses and skirts? This was my inspiration for the black pencil skirt. Body hugging, a bit longer and a narrower sweep (the circumference of the bottom hem of a skirt, dress or jacket) which helps to elongate and accentuate the leg.
When I started to sketch I didn’t turn to current trends for inspiration. I turned to those classic movies and actresses that I loved when I was a kid. What would Audrey Hepburn wear? How about Barbra Streisand? These women stuck with what worked for them. Classic silhouettes that showed off their talent and accentuated their success. I wanted a pencil skirt that would do the same for today’s everyday “stars”. Of course, this professional pencil skirt needed to be of the best fabric, complete with details and construction that showed luxury and made in the US.
One last thought, I would love to see how you would style the pencil skirt. Send me your photos, tag me (@roseandthread_) on social media and we will be sure to share your inspiration.
