I thought I had fixed the problem with this skirt (Burda 11 2009 #120). I promise that I unstitched the pockets and place them again with the skirt hanging and I promise that I tried it on and it looked fine or did I wanted it to be fine so much that I thought it was? I don't know but it looks the same.
Something else I noticed with this set of pictures is that the A line side seams are flaring too much. So I will change the sides seams and maybe even play with the size of the pockets. And you know what really drives me mad? That this is a skirt for goodness sake! Also I took no shortcuts in construction and took my time.
Oh well, I really do like how this outfit looks and the cardigan covers up the problem from most angles.
I also wanted to show you the necklace I'm wearing; it is a vintage Monet from the 70s. When I first arrived in the States this rigid silver necklaces were all the rage and I wanted one really bad, I got one for my 15th birthday with a couple of pendants (a bicycle and a turtle, which I still have) and I was as happy as could be.
I started working on Butterick 5523 so when that project is done I will work on the skirt again.
