I made most of this last year and realized it was too small for me when I made it. Now that I've lost 30 pounds, it fits perfectly! I finished the eyelets and tried it on a few days ago over my modern clothing. It's perfectly snug, like it should be. I still need to hem it but that, for me at least, is the easy part. Once that's done, I'll take better pictures and post them here. :-)

It's lined in red linen and it's a mix of machine and hand sewing. If you can see it, it's handsewn. If not, it's machine sewn. I used regular triangle gores at the sides to widen the skirt. I really used a pattern very similar to my Turkish coat one. The front opening is curved at the bust line.
