This is absolutely adorable! I love matching skirts and head-wraps so much... I like it just like it is, but if you do want to tone it down, I agree with a wide band of solid color at the top... black would probably be the best (aka most slimming) but if it were me, I'd do bright red, but i'm just a nerd like that. Don't make purses out of it though!! It's too cute as a skirt

Yay! I'm engaged! 8/4/08

Hey thanks everyone.  My Pookie is having kittens any day now and freaks out if the machine is out,  and chews on my fabric.....so I haven't done anything with the skirt yet, but thanks for all the suggestions.

answer some of the questions:

Its not a big butt or big thigh thing.

its just a middle thing.  but not tummy middle,  just side middle.  but not so much of a deal that I would actually do a sit up or anything. Grin

so I think it looks good from my crotch line and down.  its the waist to legs that are "box-y"  if you could picture that.    
thanks gals for the support


Where are my scissors!!!

can we see it on you? Maybe that would help. I personally like La Ragazza's post, but i doubt your the typical fat girl.  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Aw, bless Pookie's little heart.  The last days of pregnancy aren't easy for anyone...woman or cat.  I'll bet you can't wait to see the new kitties.

To avoid that boxy look, I think you'll want to define your waistline while drawing attention away from your love handle area.  Toast's suggestion for putting a band of solid fabric at the top will help.  Another alternative is to make a grosgrain ribbon belt with the D rings to wear sort of "slung" over the skirt.  Red or yellow might be good colors to use.  

Check out this thread to see a link to the kind of belt I'm talking about:

Hope that helps.  BTW, let us know when the kittens are born.

I'm not old, I'm VINTAGE!
