I came of age in the ’80’s –  and over the years  I’ve given up the big hair, the big shoulder pads in jackets, but I still love a good pencil skirt and this is it:   I recently made two of these.  This one is from home dec fabric I purchased at M&L Fabrics in Anaheim.

The pattern is very easy and I purchased it through Lanetzliving.net, which is a great website for fininding out-of-print patterns.  The pattern is Butterick 5390.
