I won't resew the old green costume. It would take almost as much time as making a new one and it wouldn't look half as good as the new one. I plan a green (nicer colour :-) ) dress, lower edge 15 cm max from the petticoat, also a bodice and extending sleeves between wrist and elbow. The lace will be on all borders - sleeves, bodice and underpart.
I thought to use my blue chalk to draw the lines, but I found a yellow pencil better. The chalk trace is so wide, that it could spoil the final effect. Maybe I'm a perfectionist but I like it more now and the work is comfortable :-)
