Seriously, these are the skirts of my dreams. I love button-fronts but the Colette Beignet is the wrong shape for me: it's neither straight nor A-line and I know I would struggle to make it fit my flat-bottomed, straight-up-and-down frame without looking like I was wearing my mother's hand-me-downs.
I have a vintage (1970) pattern that I was on the point of trying out, but I had the nagging suspicion it was too insubstantial and plain - I wanted a little bit of swish.
Kelly? You've got the high waist that I love / need, combined with side pockets and look - best of all! - those neat little pleats either side of the button band. So you get skirt width without bulk over the tummy.
