the necklace I made here.
A. No, it doesn’t have a lining. You’ll need to wear something underneath like a slip because when you hold up your arms, it will show a huge chunk of your sides. I wear a spaghetti strap tank dress under it that’s similar to a slip.
Q: It looks too good to be true. I wonder about the waistband and how it lays so perfect. What size skirt would I buy?
A: More important than the size of the skirt, I would first try on the dress around my neck and see how the waistband falls around your shoulders and neck. If it falls nicely, no need to change anything. If it’s too loose, you can sew one side of the skirt smaller(no need to sew two sides since the elastic waistband pleated skirt has no center/sides/back really. If it’s too tight, find another skirt.
Q: How long was the skirt when you started?
A: It hit my ankle bones when I had the skirt on regular. You’ll need an ankle length or longer to have the outcome as shown above. If you don’t mind the length shorter, go for it! I think it’ll be adorable shorter.
