i guess that's the term for it... OxDict has it

GF: 西装裙的俗称。因裙摆较小,穿着走路时只能迈小步,故称。

Wp: A pencil skirt is a slim-fitting skirt with a straight, narrow cut. Generally the hem falls to, or is just below, the knee and is tailored for a close fit. It is named for its shape: long and slim like a pencil.
The pencil skirt may be worn either as a separate piece of clothing or as part of a suit. A pencil skirt usually has a vent at the back, or less commonly at the sides, since its slim, narrow shape can otherwise restrict the movement of the wearer. Sometimes a kick pleat, which exposes less skin, is used instead of a vent. Pencil skirts made from stretchy knitted fabrics do not normally need vents or pleats.

1) Yeah, I think "one-step skirt" – which is what PLC and K say – is Chinglish, a direct translation from 一步裙.

2) 这条裙子叫铅笔裙(pencil skirt),中国很多女性也称之为一步裙或是包臀半裙。
