|A supa-cute a-line mini with the structural elements that reflect the newest trends on the runway, it features simple cable detailing, a 3-button opening at the center-back, and "tushie-shaping" (so that it fits over one’s curves and doesn’t ride up in the back).
The sizing for this garment allows for a perfect fit because length and hip circumference are dealt with separately – so narrower sizes are not automatically shorter and wider sizes are not automatically longer. Is that the way it should be all the time?

Length and hip-width are handled separately in the pattern for this skirt, so you can customize the completed garment to both your height and to how much leg you wish to show.You have your option of lengths, in one inch increments, from 16 inches to 20 inches.
This skirt is designed with 0-1 inches of ease in the waist, and 1-2 inches of ease in the hips, so choose the size which is 1-2 inches greater than your hip measurement. If your waist and hips each indicate a different size, choose the larger of the sizes to ensure the best fit.
