Cardiff, United ...
Part of the problem was that I wanted this to be a very flowy chiffon skirt, but I ordered the chiffon online and it doesn’t have any weight to it. This makes it puff out on the hips – which is not particularly flattering and it also makes the static chiffon very clingy to the lining.
However, I do like the lace trim sandwiched in the waistband and the button and button loop at the top. Small, but pleasant saving graces! I guess I could take it apart, but I’m loathe to do that as it took so damn long to work that chiffon!
