There's something just slightly wrong about this pattern, and I'm pretty sure it's the buttons.
The bodice, with the little mandarin collar and the fluttery short sleeves, is just great. The right-side pocket is nice, too. But then your eye hits those buttons, and it's all over.
It might just be me, though — I hate buttons on skirts. They always (at least on me) show strain, get weird wrinkles around them, and are uncomfortable to sit on. Not to mention drawing the eye down and away.
If you want this pattern (B30), click on the link, and be prepared to wait for it to be shipped from Australia …

I guess we can’t all like the same things. LOL!–Lydia
Now, this one I like VERY much!:http://www.hepcats.net/~lydia/inventory/butterick_6541.htm
I’d be tempted to somehow make the buttons just decorative, rather than functional. That way, no strain.
What the heck was the designer thinking when he made this interesting piece?!
