So I wrote another blog entry which you can see here I'm not going to copy it here because it's more idea related and less actually sewing, but I'm taking a poll. Do you like stoning on skirts and do you prefer a skirt that starts at the natural waist or just above the hips? (Drop waist is not an option for my body type.)
I'd say just above the hips, though the two skirt locations are pretty close (at least in my case). Since drop waist isn't an option for you, the just above the hips at least hugs the body a bit more, showing off the curves. High waisted (unless it's empress style or something similar) just looks very 1980s to me.
