Thanks to all those fantastic people that left messages and drawings. I knew you’d be able to help me!
I shortened the waist by half an inch and put a dart in the back piece like so (I traced my pattern piece onto thick interfacing – its so easy to make alterations to!)
and then I sewed it up and put the skirt on this time. Ran out of bedspread material so hacked into some poly cotton from my stash.
I love the lay of the skirt. The pleats are too perfect for words!
So unless anyone has any further comments – I think its time to get cutting on my fashion fabric!
Thanks again, you were awesome.
