This skirt...aaarrrgghh!! (Vogue 8543)

So, the suit is coming along. I needed to make an FBA for the jacket. These are pics of the skirt. I'm not thrilled over it. There's too much fullness and curve in the high hip area. For me, it made the alterations challenging. I love the look of the seams with kick pleats in the back, but they don't translate well during execution. The seams in the hem make it bulky. If I do it again, I'll eliminate the pleat and just work with the seams. I may work on the jacket this week, but the skirt's outcome has me a little frustrated with the whole project! More later...
