I got thoroughly confused putting this together and I am convinced that the technical drawing is wrong, but the pattern pieces are correct. I think that the image on the left above is the back and on the right is how the front should look, with the zip switched to the left side. So watch out for this if you make this pattern up.
I also found that it is very close fitting in the hips, I had to let the seams out in the front and I still don't have the fit right there as you can see from the wrinkles I am getting across the front as soon as I don't stand like a soldier, but I ran out of fabric. I do like the skirt so I'll cut wider seam allowances next time, go up a size or look into full front thigh adjustments. I even tried it on backwards in case my theory on the technical drawing error was garbage, but that made things worse!
I'm wearing it with the Style Arc Madeleine top which I was a bit non plussed about when I made it, but now I love it and wear it all the time. I think I just got annoyed with having to fuss around with the band, but it's amazing what a bit of time in the old magic closet can do.
