To make this variation of the Eliana dress pattern, you just need to lengthen the skirt pieces. For mine, I added 50 cm to the skirt hem and widened the skirt to use the whole fabric width. In order to keep the fabric length recommended, I cut the skirt back piece in two instead of on the fold and planned quite ingeniously the layout. But I’m happy to report that I was able to make the maxi length version in the original yardage (ok, I’m quite short so it might have helped). Here is the layout I used:
For the rest, I followed the instructions: bias binding for the neckline, elastic for the waist, pockets. I love the bohemian vibe of this maxi Eliana.
