dotted mabel

I guess a few months ago I became a bit obsessed with the Colette Mabel skirt.  I ordered the pattern, made a muslin, added some length, straightened out the hip down part a bit, and made myself a navy blue polk a dot one.  Now all I have to do is figure out what to wear it with.
I've worn this skirt once and it is very comfy.  I could not find thick enough knit fabric in a print that I liked so this one is fully lined with plain navy cotton lycra.  I like the skirt a lot but I must say that if you do not have a perfectly flat tummy in this skirt you will be able to tell.  Not exactly a problem but worth noting.  It is unlikely that I will ever tuck a shirt in with this one.
