Diy Pencil Skirt w/Zippered Slit

Confession, I love tweed. While out at the fabric store I saw this tweed fabric and knew I had to have it. I knew it would make a greet pencil skirt but I didn't want one that was too plain. I thought a good idea to spice it up would be a leg slit. Then I thought to make things easier for myself why not use one long zipper down the front so that it's easy to put on and the zipper could be zipped up and down to decide how much leg I wanted to show.

I made the skirt very form fitting because with the horizontal lines I didn't want to look boxy. The bottom of the skirt is tapered in so that when you open the zipper to show leg it doesn't turn into an a-line skirt.
