I haven't quite come to terms with the overkirt yet, but I'm liking it more than I did. The pattern took less fabric than I had anticipated, so I was able to start from scratch. I should know better than to work from a pattern. It rarely ends up well!
I'm still not quite sure I like the ruched side, but I will keep messing around with it to see what I come up with. I think it's a smidge too long - I've already hemmed it, so I'll be taking the excess off the top which hasn't been put into the waistband yet. Anyhoo, on to the pics.
