Are you planning to make a farthingale to wear under it? That might help with the skirt length.

maybe. I have the other pattern for it, from which I made the shift. I am only 5'4'', so I usually shorten patterns. I think it is easier to get about without a farthingale. I am happy with the length now that I shortened it after the first year. my present issue is that I want to secure the overskirt in place- I probably won't wear it again till next fall- plenty of time for improvements.

I would highly recommend a farthingale - its actually easier not harder to walk in. it keeps the weight off your legs so you can take real steps without it wadding up as you walk! Be aware that it will take up several inches, though.

I second a farthingale. It is also nice air conditioning for your lower half!
