I have been told, via books and blogs and TV, that as a pear shaped woman, I should steer clear of straight fitted skirts. I do that, but then again, sometimes I wear shop bought straight skirts, and sometimes it fits me ( maybe 1 in every 50 I try on). You would think that making one for myself that fit would be easy right? I thought so too, and ended up here
Why can it not look as smooth as it does on the model. True I know that my hips are all over the place, but still.....I cut a size 14 at the waist, and graded out to a size 18 at the hips.
The result of that little pattern play left me with excess fabric between the widest point of my hips and my waist.hmm.
