I have a blog post (it's kind of long) detailing the issues I'm having.

Puckering at the hip and weirdness (that's descriptive, right??) under the butt.

I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks! :)

I think this is what you have going on at the waist as I look at your side view.

Lena does an excellent job of explaining the pattern adjustment needed.

Also, you have what I call "hip ears" which happens to women like us who aren't hourglass-y. The pattern has more curve than your body. Measure at the hip, add the ease you like in a skirt and choose the matching size. You will need to measure your waist and cut the pattern bigger there. I usually cut a 12 at the hip and up to a 16 at the waist. It's easy if the pattern is multi-sized.
