I made a Cute skirt before this one. I haven’t posted a picture of it because I was not happy with the fit. I made the size according to my waist and hip measurements on the package. It came out kind of poofy in the back. I went to the flicker skirt group that Kristin at Sew Mama Sew mentioned to me the other day on my other skirt post and lo and behold someone else had made this skirt and had the same problem. She recommended going down a size. I did that with this skirt and voila, a fabulously cute skirt with no poof.
