    Ahhh awesome, I was thinking that photographs of stuff on hangers doesn’t really give an accurate idea of length! I also have to get extra long tops or dresses, because when you have a really big bust, the garment almost ‘shrinks’ in length lol I forget that ‘normal’ people don’t have that problem. It’s a very cool dress!

      Only the bodice is lined on this one, i will try and make a tutorial but the Colette Sewing Handbook, which is where this pattern is from has really clear instructions, its probably explained better in there than I could ever do.

      I made it as a dress to wear with tights! Its not super short, the original skirt came down to the top of my knee so this one comes to about the middle of my thigh.
