This is my version of the Kasia skirt from burday style(it's free!!). Was quiet easy to make altho the instructions on the waistband are not clearly written.
I cut to a 44 and it fits fine abound the hips but gapes around the waist band, not a massive gap tho maybe 2/2.5cm. I also took up the hem by 4 inches.
I used red wool and blue and white polka dot cotton from my stash, I love the button up front, looks more complicated than it is, altho doing button holes was a pain!
I love the colours, makes me cheerie when wearing it!! ( I honestly didn't wear it out in brown boots!  Tongue)

Comments and critiques would be great!!

i love the fabrics you paired together Smiley i also had the same waistband issue with the first high-waisted skirt i made. I find the best way to handle it is to either cut a slant on either side of the waistband before putting it together like this: /______\

or cut the whole band with a curve (the bottom and top edges) as well as a slant on either side. Hope that made sense

I'm loving this style!  I'm going to have to go and hunt down the pattern now and make one up for myself soon.  It looks so versatile - and you could make it up in so many different combinations...  oh, the possibilities!  Thanks for sharing!

ninjanator -  does make sense, I did try it on a few times before finishing the waistband, but I think I may have been placing it too low. I will try what you suggested next time!

This is the pattern, just to save you looking Smiley

I will get more pictures the next time I wear it.

I do plan on making another, I got a bit of orange/brown tartan but that might be too thin. I was thinking plain black with some mad pocket/hip yokes!!

Can't cook.

I love the matching fabrics. I might give this one a try myself one of these days.
