I felt concerned that my fabric is not quite supple enough to mesh with the design. Volume is OK if the fabric is drapey. So I went for a shorter length (looks cute with the straight skirt, too!) and no belt. I have pinned on the pockets, too.
When I cut it out, I was glad I had changed the length because I didn't have enough for the knee length anyway.
Well, it is back to work for me tomorrow. When I am telecommuting, I have lots more sewing time, but, alas, I don't get to work from home as much as I would like.
Oh well - I need a place to wear these clothes I am sewing, right?
