self drafted pattern based on a wedding dress by Alabama Chanin. The original (mine, that is) is by far one of my favorite pieces and I've been meaning to make another for a while now. I still need to add seam binding of some sort to the neckline and armholes, which I'm thinking should be black knit of the same weight so that I can use the same thing to add an inch or two onto the hem without it looking funny. Right now, there is enough unevenness in the hem that were I to hem it as it is, it would be right above my knee, and I just don't like the aesthetics. Besides generally having bruised up child-knees, I think longer skirts better balance taller people.
