Pont des Arts Skirt

Hoo boy. You know, I don't self-publish often, and when I do it's a fairly anxiety-producing, nailbiting experience. You never know if your pattern is going to be a big hit or a massive flop, and today's pattern is no exception. I give you: The Pont des Arts Skirt!

I happen to really love this skirt; I love the versatility of high-waisted pencil skirts, and this one is knit in a particularly luxurious yarn from Artyarns. Ensemble Light is a 2-ply (I'm gonna call it fingering weight) yarn composed of 50% cashmere and 50% silk. And if that isn't enough to sell you on it, I can personally attest to the amazing yumminess of both the yarn and the resulting fabric.

Top-down construction with an elastic waistband

The construction here is top-down seamless, naturally. There's an elastic waistband and a neat folded hem at the bottom. The fabric contains tiny purl stripes to keep the look a little bit funky, but don't worry - the stripes are small enough not to be unflattering to your figure! This fabric is actually meant to be reminscent of the wildly popular bandage skirts. I gotta keep my girls sexy! ;)

Show off those curves!
I could see this skirt being worn a multitude of ways. Dress it up for a sexy night out on the town as pictured above, or dress it down with an untucked tshirt and some cute flats. You could even wear it to the office! I'm in the midst of designing a companion piece to wear with this too, in case you want to go all-knitwear. (It's going to be a lovely, floaty, high-low tank, in case you're dying to know.) In the meantime, here are a couple of inspirations for you:

  1. Love the skirt! Im a huge fan of pencil skirts, and this is the first knit one I've seen that I like. Very pretty.

  2. I love it, too! I'm pretty sure I'll start knitting it as soon as I keep my promise to finish all unfinished projects that are lying around in our home! I'm really into knitted skirts right now so this fits the profile very nicely.
