To begin, I really liked the asymmetrical yoke front, but I had my doubts whether it would fit me properly. I felt that there might be too much of a curve where all the seams joined, and one other pattern reviewer on patternreview.com confirmed my suspicions as well. However, how would I know for sure unless I sewed up the front and checked it out? Sure enough it was no good, but what I discovered was that the center front of the skirt worked pretty well on my hips, so I made another front piece (laying the pattern tissue upside down so that I had a mirror image). This became the other side of the skirt. So the original side seams now became my front and back seams, creating a neat geometrical effect on the front, side, and back of the skirt.
