Figure out the dimensions and pattern of the bodice by drawing your measurements on the lining fabric. I marked the positioning of the dress on my body, the depth of the neckline, and the length of the hem. I fit the bodice to my body because I usually have to alter ready-made patterns anyway. As I said before, I traced from my favorite McCall’s pattern for the skirt, adjusting it to the desired length.
