My mom saw the child's version of this dress and wanted me to make an adult size for her (she is very petite, less than 5' tall, so kid's clothes don't look too crazy on her!). I used the Pink Fig pattern and just upsized the bodice to fit my mom. We kept the skirt the same length and width - since it was gathered, it would fit the larger bodice without a problem. I shirred the back with elastic, but if I make another adult size, I will just add in a zipper to make the bodice more fitted. My mom loves it and wants me to make myself one so we can match
. I probably will make some other variant on this, full skirts are not my thing!
