So, I made vintage simplicity 2528 which is a wrap around skirt with large patch pockets. Did I happen to mention that the pockets are large? I trimmed them with bias contrast that is the same dotted print from the reverse applique flower detail. After the skirt was finished, I realized that it needed to be shorter. Not wanting to loose the great rick rack action, I had to shorten it with small pleats. The hemline is now weighted and holds its shape much as it would with a petticoat. Happy accident.
