|Faux box pleat (rt) and godet (rt)|
There are several ways to make the pencil skirt (Simplicity 1760) a flirt skirt. Any method that widens the skirt at the knees will make it a flirt skirt. I decided to experiment with the "godet" and a "faux box pleat". placed strategically around the hemline of a skirt, either option will allow movement of the skirt at the knees.

Of course with the fabrics being white and ivory, there will be little difference.
The faux box pleat is made using a colored rectangular or square piece of fabric between two panels of the skirt. The fabric is folded and as a result hides unless the wearer of the skirt is moving. Using a color of fabric similar to the main color of the skirt will make a very subtle look. While somewhat more complicated, imho, the box pleat gives 10 times the wow factor.
