Printed Pencil Skirt
This custom pencil skirt is made to order with your design. Choose from three different stretch fabrics; Crushed Velour with a soft pile and shiny fabric surface, Ponte Jersey with a rib knit and interlock or Rox Sports Jersey with a shiny feel and breathable nature. Designed with a high-waist and centre back seam with 18.5cm slit from the bottom, our custom made pencil skirts are design to accentuate your natural curves and give a body sculpting style.
Your label, your brand
Using our online design tool you can create your own custom labels for your printed pencil skirt. Each of the fabric labels is custom made at the time we make your printed pencil skirt, you can personalise with a message, or even your customer's name. Personalised labels can really help build your brand - perfect if you intend to sell your custom pencil skirt - as well as helping you to become recognisable.
Style it With
Our Marilyn Custom Pencil Skirt works beautifully when paired with our custom fitted t-shirts. The high waist of the printed pencil skirt can give you a great hourglass figure with a close-fitting top, tucked in. You could add our wedge espadrilles to give height that - when paired with the high-waist - can make your legs appear longer.
Turn inside out before washing. Iron on the reverse of the printed side. 30°c wash. Low tumble heat. Do not wring. Low heat iron. Steam safe.

Frequently asked questions:
Will I have enough movement in my skirt?
Absolutely. The three fabrics that your custom pencil skirt is available in all have fantastic stretch qualities. This paired with the 18.5cm slit from the bottom of the centre back, allowed for amazing freedom of movement.
Is this formal wear or comfort wear?
We don't believe you should have to choose. Along with the great amount of movement you have with these skirts, each of the textiles is very soft, and the stretch allows for extra comfort even when bending down, stretching up or leaning across. The printed pencil skirt will feature your own design, and the classic look of the pencil skirt makes it perfect for more formal occasions, whilst offering amazing comfort.
What do you mean by body sculpting?
These custom made pencil skirts have been designed to accentuate your body's natural curvature. High-waisted garments are perfect for hiding a multitude of sins, and as they are worn on the waist rather than the hips, focus will be drawn to the slimmest part of your mid-section. The elasticated waist allows you to wear the printed pencil skirt without lumps and bumps that a zip or buttons may cause, giving you a smoother, more seamless look.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
