A little black skirt - Simplicity 5259

I know I've gone on and on about my love of my little black skirts here and here and here . But I can't help it.  I went and did it again. Sewed myself another little black skirt. In my defense all three of those black skirts are long gone from my closet.  Two were too large (yay) and one was too small (boo).  This one is just right.  (Sheesh, now I have the Goldilocks and the Three Bears story rolling around in my brain...) Now I know this looks like a boring black pencil skirt. But it has a little surprise. Yep.   A off-center front slit.  Just enough to let a little leg show,   tried to do the leg pose ala Angelina Jolie but the slit isn't high enough, LOL. By the way, the pattern is Simplicity 5259 - and if you need a basic skirt pattern I highly recommend this one. *********************************************************
