Having 4+" curve from my waist to my hips is too much. I thought that adding 4-1" darts in the back would help with the severe curve amount.
I added 1" height at center back waist for my ample rear.
I now know why I wear flared and circle skirts. But, I wanted a slimmer silhouette skirt and I will have to make it work for my curves.
Elastic waist is a must with the hip/waist difference. It looks pretty good on the dressform.

What's happening here? How do I get rid of the flare under my bum and belly? Since the front view looks ok, would tapering the side seams make it look too fitted?
I'm thinking of lengthening the skirt by another inch or two. I don't like my chubby knees showing.
PS. I never wear my shirts up there!
The skirt took only 1 yard + 12" of fabric.
Would adding a center back seam help with the flare under my bum? Maybe even a kick pleat on the next version.
I have decided that I need to do a FBA (full butt & belly adjustment)! That's a fun one! I have seen where you split the pattern from hip to hip, hinging at the side seams adding fullness at the rump & belly.
I'll work on it and let you know.
Until next time..............
