I'm torn on the results of this experiement. I think i fitted the bodice quite well by adjusting the seams at the zip on the back but the pleats in the neckline make for a weird fit around the bust. I might stitch them down and press them flat. Of the shoulders sits down fine and the other is wonky (no idea why). I do really like the skirt bit though - it's fun and twirly. Maybe I'll just hack the top off and make a skirt.
