skirt to work today (for the record by Bettina Liano - whose designs I seldom like but this one caught my eye). Before I even got to work I was cursing the damned thing. I even half considered turning back at one point and changing into something else, as I struggled with the skirt:
- twisting around my body causing one pocket to be sitting on my butt and the other on my tummy;
- bunching up on my thighs;
- rising up my waist to the point that it was almost sitting underneath my boobs; and
- buttons at the back unfastening.
Sadly I often experience this problem with pencil skirts. My grandmother (a very good dressmaker) once explained to me that it is because the waistband of most average skirts is cut straight across and not curved at the back. Now to find some pencil skirts that are the perfect cut for me... on my wish list (which I'm working on).
