Hi guys, me again.

So I was finally able to get my skirt to fit a bit better. As per advice I flattened the curve from waist to hip a bit, and I carried in the bottom about 5" total to get the pencil look. I have tried widening the hip: right now in total its about 1 1/2" bigger than my hip. I also made the area 1" above the hip and 1/2" below the hip, the same width as the hip, to ensure I have ease, but…….

Problem: My skirt keeps riding up (@ the hip not the waist).

Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Additional info: this is still my brown cotton (muslin) template trial piece. No darts in the waist. I used Butterick B5566 Style D skirt pattern waist to get my curve for the waist. So the waist fits really nice. I have a bit of a tummy on and around my waist) making my measurements……

Waist: 36"
Hips: 43"
Hip to Waist length: 7.5"

P.S. I have lots of pics of my initial and then the alterations, if I could figure out how to upload them
