Looks fabulous on you! Regarding A & B with separate facing...I wonder if it's to do with fabric choices. A & B says "Fine stretch jersey" and C says "Ponte jersey". Maybe the fine stretch jersey needs the extra seaming to stabilize the waist line where as ponte would be hefty enough to retain the width better? With facing seaming you can also add clear elastic to the seam allowance to keep the waist more fitted without losing stretch. I see this technique used in a few of my Victoria's Secret stretchy garments.

So happy you made up this pattern! It looks great on you and love the striped fabric. This is definitely one of my favorites from the May issue, but I'm thinking I may have to be wary of the fitting waist area....I may have to lose a few pounds first before attempting this, LOL.

I absolutely love the way you positioned the stripes on this skirt, its very visually appealing and the fabris is awesome! You look like a hottie, good job!
