The perfect pencil skirt by Dixiefried Clothing is a great name and description for this skirt! This skirt is made from high quality, soft, stretch bengaline  and is slim-fitting with a straight narrow cut . I love how the hem falls right at the knee just like a classic, vintage style pencil skirt should. I'm also partial to this skirt for it's high waist line since I find it to be best suited for my shape and for the vintage look I like.

My first Perfect Pencil skirt was the burgundy which I purchased from a lovely PUG fan and my second was the gold after seeing it in person on display at Viva in April and kicking myself in the butt for not purchasing it!  I  just had to get it when Pinup girl clothing had one of their awesome sales :D Burgundy and Gold are not colors you see available very often in skirts which is why I was drawn to them and just had to add them both to my wardrobe.

I would  like to share with you how I like to wear my Dixiefried perfect pencil skirt...

The Perfect pencil skirt in Burgundy Available here  which is now on sale! Paired with my Lucky 13 tank top purchased from Heartbreak Boutique, a new Boutique that opened here in Saint John, NB and will soon be carrying Pinup Girl Clothing!!  I'm giddy with excitement!! :D


Instead of throwing on a pair of jeans for running errands, out enjoying a meal with my hubby or on a casual Saturday at work, I throw on my Dixiefried pencil skirt paired with a fitted T shirt or tank top, a cute handkerchief and heels. I'm a big fan of this combo since I can still look put together, be laid back but feminine all in one!


The Perfect pencil skirt  in gold  Available here paired with a tangerine colored T shirt  from Canadian retailer Suzy Shier and Handkerchief made from Planet Pinup.  

For sizing reference my measurements are 36''(37)-27.5''(28)-36'' and wear this skirt in a size small.  The waist band I  find does not have a lot of stretch  to it and I  found it to be a tad snug for me in the waist area , but it fit perfect everywhere else. So what I did was remove the button and repositioned  it a tad  ( about a inch) to give me a little more room in the waist and now I don't find the waist band to be snug at all... I recommend this to any of you that may  find the waist band on your skirts or pants to be to this way on you.. :)

If you've never thought of wearing your pencil skirt casually you should give it a try! It's all about experimenting and having fun with your wardrobe. You may be pleasantly surprised with the outfit you put together! And Dixiefried Clothing Perfect pencil skirt  is a great item to start with for this look!


I would love the hear any feedback from any of you who give this look a try and pictures of your casual look put together are welcome as well! I always enjoy seeing how others put items from their wardrobe together :D

I LOVE these skirts! You're right, I enjoy wearing them over jeans any day, throw on a simple t shirt underneath, perfection. I don't wear heels with them as often, being 5'10", heels tend to make me tower over EVERYONE! Thanks for the good read!!

Bravo, I just couldn't agree more that a pencil skirt is the perfect polished casual look. It is an absolute staple in my opinion. I now own a rainbow of colors. I just love them.

Great review dearie. :D

I love my Dixiefried.  They give that amazing curve from waist to hip.  I find in the Pinup Couture, in order to accommodate my hips, I have to go with Small and then I have enough gape on the waist that I lose some of that. Plus the bengaline is SOOOOO comfie.

I'm glad you gals enjoy my reviews as much as I enjoy writing them :D

Brandi, thank you so much for sharing your pic with me!! The Dixiefried pencil skirt looks amazing on you!! What a figure you have!!  I'm glad you took the plunge and tried out a combo with the plum tank top and black skirt with the accents of red with you hair accessory, heels and Leopard purse... I can picture in my mind how lovely it would be! I love being adventurist with my clothing!  I know it may sound odd but try your plum tank top with your Burgundy skirt... I've done this combo before... It may not be for everyone but you never know until you try it :D

Linsey , i have seen fan photos of you in your Dixiefried skirt and you look PERFECT in them! I really liked the pic you posted of your perfect pencil skirt with your Bustier top :D  I would love to add the red and the black to my collection..

Amavesta Bee, you look smokin' hot in your red perfect pencil and i can,t wait to see you in your new black one!! You MUST wear it with your Blue vamp top!! You'll be turning heads for sure in that combo!!

Lisa K, Bengaline is a great material, and their Bengaline is soft and not scratchy at all! You won't be disappointed with this pencil skirt! Great item to add to your collection you've started :D

Marie, Thank you girlfriend!!  Hugs!! and Bisou, Bisou!!

Alecia, it,s nice to hear that other gals prefer to wear a pencil skirt than a pair of jeans :)  I've tried my pencil skirt with flats once and it did nothing for my legs and i felt so short!! Luckily i found a pair of shoes that have a short wedge on them so to me it's almost like wearing flats! LOL   :D

great review! I should really get out and try one of these. I am always afraid my tummy will stick out and I will end up looking like ET with boobs....

I'm 5'11" and a 6 or 8 US size.  How's the length on these?  I would assume I would take a medium or do they run big, as I sometimes take a small.  Thanks for the input!!!

Jessica, you're so right on the money with how versatile they are!! :) I need to catch up to you since I only have the Burgundy and gold, but would love to have the classic black one and the red of course!! I too would love to see it available in more colors, like the deep plum Masuimi dress!! *drools*

Denise, You live close by to the new Pinup Girl Boutique?! Lucky you!! :D Yes if you can you should definitely get out there and give this skirt a try!! If you own a nice shapewear or spanx like garment bring it with you when trying on the skirt to get the full effect and see how you like it :) Let me know how you make out and if you've purchased one i'd love to see it on you and how you've accessorized it :D

Lauri, I would go by your waist ,measurement... If you have a measuring tape, measure the smallest part of your waist and then the fullest part of your hips and then check out the sizing chart. I'm wearing a small and my waist is 27.5'' (28) and hips are close to 36'' The waist band part of the skirt doesn't have a lot of stretch like the rest of the skirt does, and since I sit at a desk all day for work it would get a tad uncomfortable for me, so I took the skirt to the tailor and had her move the button about a inch and that gave me some extra breathing room in the waist :) So i wouldn't say that the skirt runs big, especially in the waist!! I'm about 5'3'' and as you can see from the photos I included the skirt hits me right at the knee, I hope this info is helpful but if you have any other questions feel free to send me a message if you would like :D
