Hmmm...we are all so different. I am extremely short (5 feet exactly) but there was no need to shorten the waist or bodice because I am long waisted with short legs. I had to do a FBA so I actually had to lengthen the front. I only shortened the skirt about an inch. I guess the key here is to know thy self :) Nice job! Yes, you should inter it in the LWD contest.

This looks lovely. Well done. I am doing one in a crisp burgundy linen. My above the waist problem is different. I have a low bust point. I always have to lower it on patterns by almost an inch. So on this pattern I needed to make the bodice pieces longer, so that the seam is below my bust, but then there is some adjusting to do with the band. In order to keep the lines of the design I had to change the curve of the front band so that it meets the back band at the side seams-slightly less dramatic. This is still a work in progress and won't go back to it until warmer weather here-hard to make a linen sleeveless when the snow is drifting about outside.
