This is a great pattern and easy to make alterations too. I decided on a full lining (seen in second photo), which was very easy to install and really adds a silky smooth finish. By Hand London actually has a sew along on their website you can follow and also provides pattern hacks to this pattern. One of which is the babydoll hack, which I used leftover crepe back satin for; it is definitely easier/quicker to construct since you only need to make sure the bust fits. I turned the babydoll into a shirt length since I didn’t have enough fabric for it be a proper babydoll length. Very pleased with both products.
