Lemongreen pencil skirt

This pencil skirt was created of 0.35mm lemongreen latex (from Blackstyle) with small 0.5mm wide contrasting edges of neon pink latex.  The skirt is made to measure for one of my customers.

For the creation I measured the circumferences of her body from the belly down to the knees (letting some room to allow walking) and divided each length by 4. Then I reduced the front seams by 5mm on each side at the hip and added that amount to the rear parts to give some extra space for the backside. These adjustments gave the skirt a perfect fit (you cannot see that on the photo, where the skirt is worn by Monique, not the customer).

For the flattering ruffles at the knees I cut out a ring of latex with an inner circumference approximately the same size as the the circumference of the lower end of the skirt (make it some centimeters larger if you need). The diameter of the outer edge is 10cm larger then that of the inner one. Remember: The circumference of a circle is the diameter multiplied with π (3.1415).

I cut the ruffle ring open and glued it to the skirt, adding the neon edges for contrast. Latex Kitty has a good tutorial for creating ruffles.
