I recently got some french curves (I had no idea that it was the term in use for curved rulers) to draft the pattern of this skirt. I got inspired by the Bella trousers, the way it surrounds the hips and the waist. Unfortunatelly, I made too many rectifications ( I initially wanted to post the pattern)and now I am lost… ah French curves …What do I do with you with you now?…just stop the camembert I guess because my pattern sketches really stink.
The front panel curvy(on top of the pleats) bit has small pockets, zip on the side. No hem just a triple zigzag round.
