|I used McCall's pattern #M5972 with one minor change in the design. Instead of using 3 rows of ruffles, I dropped the lowest row of ruffle and just used 2 rows. I am 5'3" and I felt I needed to be taller for 3 rows of ruffles.
The fabric I used was a 4 ply silk crepe, underlined with silk crepe de chine, and lined with silk crepe de chine. For the ruffles I used a silk double georgette fabric.
