Hi can anyone find me an A-line skirt like the one in the middle picture in this link
I need to do a wardrobe overhaul - I'm a classic pear shape but have a collection of pencil skirts and straight/skinny trousers which are all conspiring to make me look like a dumpy carrot

Thanks ujjayi - I've been on a trouser drafting course before and do a bit of dress making. But not done this kind of skirt. I 'll probably make it up in an old sheet first to test the pattern as I find I do better if I've tested the pattern properly.

I'm wanting to go for a Michelle Obama style nipped in waist and skirt look. Have been looking on pinterest at different examples. I agree that you have to watch the length of the skirt and keep it just below the knee

Thanks everyone for the links
