But what I mean to explain is that this item will fit little people and large people, it all depends on how you tie it. Can you see the bustling action in the back? Not everyone likes this feature. It is subtle and it isn't pronounced. It is a tough sell.
There are those shoes ag'in!
If anyone is interested, I will, eventually and somehow, post the pattern for this piece. Adjust it in anyway you like, have a larger ruffle, use no ruffle at all, make the skirt floor length, or ruffle it up so tight the entire skirt balloons up. Add beading to the ties, put little bows around the waistline, add a pocket centre front, hey I like that last idea.
