    This is Burda #7216. The fabric is a cotton twill with stretch, purchased at The Common Thread. It has a paper bag waist, which is very high. I lowered it by 1", but I recommend even more. The pattern back is darted and fits well, but the front is flat, and there's enough fabric for the wearer to create a deep tuck, held in place with a sash. Rather than leaving the sash/belt loose, I stitched it to the skirt except for a small area around where the fabric is folded in the front. I felt it needed front waistline shaping, so I added a couple small darts, and a narrow elastic at the waist to pull it in just a little.
