      Hi Roliver!

      I saw your note and thought let you know that more info is available on this pattern and what is needed to make it if you click on the little scissors cutting a pattern icon under the “This project is based on” image on the side bar of this page. This is what they say about suggested fabrics:

      Recommended Materials

      Lightweight, softly draping dress fabrics

      I plan to make it in a mid-weight drapey knit fabric, and maybe try it in a silk charmeuse or crepe.

      Happy sewing and hope to see your version of it!

    Hi Talia, I had the same question ( and a couple more) regarding the changes – I think the slit is shortened, the skirt is longer, and took out the fastener at the top of the slit. If you end up making the dress with the changes, let me know, I’ve had my eye on this one for a bit…
