Skirt

I cut V8672, view A (in white). I cut a size 16 but my fabric has decent stretch so I probably could have cut a 14...I ended up taking nearly 1 1/4 inch side seams.

I put it on, zip it, ahhh. I like it. I start walking and then I get this wrinkled mess! :)

I haven't hemmed it yet so...

It's hard to tell with the black, but it looks like it was riding up. If that's the case, could the fulles part of the skirt be hitting at the wrong place on your body?

Ahhhhh!!!!

That makes sense! I think it may be meant to be higher than the natural waist and I was setting it at my waistline. I'm going to try it on again. For the 26th time :)

Just looking at the pattern picture it definitely looks like it should be sitting above your natural waist. I would think that somewhere on the envelope or one of the pattern pieces it should tell you exactly how far above the waist it should sit.

Actually I'd say that it's too tight. The skirt hikes up because there isn't enough room.

It's definitely a high-waist skirt. The best way to analyze fit is to post front, side, and rear views.

I agree with both NancyK & simplystitches. Return to the 5/8" seams, & show another picture back & front. That will show if you need more room in the back also.

Ok. I was home alone with no photogsI'll post more pics.

I didn't want it as loose as it was. It is supposed to "fitted" but it totally wasn't.

I always tell my husband, while I'm sewing, that I have no hips

The pattern piece is quite curved through the hip. My widest part is lower than where you're told to measure hip length. I think I have the puckers because I have nothing to fill that space...but then lower, I'm wider.

You've definitely taken too much out of the ss.

Looking at the side pic the skirt should not be cupping your bottom. It should hang straight down. In the back picture, at high hip, I can see the area that you are saying is puckered but if it weren't so tight in the lower hip that wouldn't be "hanging up" in that area.

I have a flat spot on my hips but as long as I don't over fit it's not even noticeable!
