  • You are not alone. I also have this problem. I am interested in the answeres too. I would think as a lining a thin voile would be great, but I am no expert. I am playing with the idea of making a simple slip myself and use it underneath.

    Wow!! Thank you Sarvi and Sarah… those tips are really great. I will definitely look everything up online. I am missing the names of the Fabrics in French… I will research. I know that in Montmartre there should be a big nice store Reine. And someone told me about a store in the area you are talking about, I forgot the name. I´ll check that…[Read more]

    Thank you Lightning. This is very good information. I am brave 🙂 I ride on my bike through the city (Berlin, Germany) the whole time… but I have no idea how it is in Paris. I am really excited.

  • Thank you ladies for your support. I will definitely try it out… My Latin american half tells me to eyeball the size of the pleats… and my german side tells me “stop, do the math”. I will come up with a formula and let you know how it went or if it worked.

  • I have only made one skirt out of this pattern, but I day dream about all the possibilities. I just saw a wonderful skirt at Max Mara… really really cute… and I think I could be able to make something similar to it with this pattern. The skirt has some pleats on the front… and I was wondering if someone has tried that out.

  • Thank you Sarvi and Liesl. I´ll keep my eyes open. Esprit has some styles that are somewhat similar right now… even a sleeveless one. I am happy because usually I need to buy bigger sizes in order for my chest to fit in… I´ll work on it and let you know.
