My thought are: to thight around the hips. It creeps up to find a spot where it fits. Open up the sides and see how much is missing.

there is more what does not fit than that . Why do you not ask Suzi Furrer about it. It is her draft and you have paid for it.

Looks to me like the skirt is too narrow, like Pfaff260 says.

Sure, I believe your work rocks, but... have you considered, how are you going to sell that stuff?

Yeah, the skirt in your picture is too narrow.

I know this is after the fact but. Always check the actual measurements on the pattern parts itself against your actual measures.Its wise to allow a little extra, "just in case". 

If you know that you will need to cut some off of the bottom when you hem the bottom then shorten from the top . this may give you room at the hip.
