Here's the front. I think it looks like culottes when my legs are together like this.
Here it is in it's full glory. You can see the top if the facing peeking out on the top left (my right). The belt is at my natural waist.
You have to be really careful with the pocket. I wasn't as careful as I could have been and I have some hip wrinkles.
It's pretty high; about an inch over your natural waist.
Embroidery detail. I bought this fabric from Fabric.com a looong time ago. I didn't realize the motif was so big when I bought it. It's been hard to find a pattern to use with it.
Here's my little one "helping". This is to show the width of the pocket.
It's an unlined skirt with side invisible zipper. You can see the pockets here. I could have used matching thread but how boring would that be? Instead I decided to match the outer embroidery and overlocked everything with orange and red. The gray you see is the interfacing around the pocket edges.
