This is a great looking skirt & looks like a fun tutorial to learn couture techniques. Sadly, I don't think the skirt would look all that great on my plus-size apple shape. But others might want to try it

How weird, the elastic/gathering is in the front. The back is flat. And the back waist is dipped lower than the front.

Of course, gathering over the butt makes a large butt look even larger, but he doesn't have any darts in the back either.

Bonny lass, bonny lass, will you be mine?
You shall neither wash dishes nor serve the wine;
But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam,
And feast upon strawberries, sugar, and cream.

The back is eased onto the waist band. Looks like there's quite a bit of ease in there. The back has a waist band, and the front doesn't, so I think that's why you cut the back lower than the front, which is fold-over.
