There really isn't bulk at the waist...but there could be! In my case, the knits are thin and I sewed clear elastic to the inside edge of each waistband. There is no casing, no doubled over fabric. It doesn't look as bad as you might think b/c the elastic scrunches up the top edge and it looks sort of decorative. Still, this is definitely a "shirt out" outfit.

This looks lovely on you, and the colors are wonderful. One question, with three skirts, is there a lot of bulk at the waist?

I did not know of the MacPhee patterns. I like the creative options. The company is a nice match for your personal creativity. You did an excellent job of balancing the various hem lengths of top and skirts to flatter your shape. Thank you for the useful details you added to your review.
