I'm so glad you mentioned the pouch at the hip. That was the most discouraging aspect of the outfit. I made it as well--twice (my reviews are on this site). I passed on the skirt the third time. I will try it again when I feel like shaving the curve. I will also close the pleats. I found it to be too much bulk at the hem line. I look forward to seeing your completed garment!

Don't you think a big company like Vogue should do a better job of drafting their patterns so you don't get pouches of fabric? Good for you for persisting, it's a lovely design but that kind of sloppiness really turns me off!

Sounds great. I look forward to seeing a picture when you have it finished.
