Help - Fitting Issue with Pencil Skirt

rchampieux's picture

I’m working on a pencil skirt sloper, and thus far have been able to successfully address my fitting issues- except one and it’s killing me! The back of the skirt from the butt up fits well. I’m using two darts on each side, to accommodate for the larger intake. I’m petite and slim, but have a pronounced derrière. However, below the butt the back fabric is jutting out rather than following the curve of my body. This is a regular issue for me and I haven’t been able to solve it – it always gives my garments a homemade look.  I've checked my fitting books, but can't find a solution.
