A beginner's wardobe - Part 2 - How to sew a skirt

Okay, part two of my video series for beginners is out. Today we are sewing a basic skirt with half-elasticated back and patch pockets.

A simple, bell-shaped skirt with half elasticated waistband and patch pockets.

Please explain how the waist area of the skirt is at an angle. My skirt is not cut right so the casing for the elastic does not fold correctly. I need help in figuring out how to correct my waist area.
The angle creates more volume in the middle of the skirt. You are not supposed to fold over the waistband to form the casing for the elastic. The elastic goes into the waistband, which is perfectly straight.
