Description of the pattern
This is a pattern for a skirt in non-stretch fabric with a back divided in three parts. A three-piece back divides the crescent shape more evenly over the butt area. the seams keep the skirt more firmly in place around the butt and hip areas.
A waistband lengthens both the front and back part of the skirt with the width of the waistband. This is the only difference in the patterns.
The skirt pattern without waistband is cut rather low on the hips. if you want a slightly higher waistline without using a waistband you will have to alter the pattern. A skirt sewn in a seating position can not be altered without moving the tucks in the side seams of the back piece. There are pattern pages to alter the main pattern. they have the same page numbers as the pages of the original pattern and you simply exchange these for the alternative of a higher waistline.
