Don't really think the pattern illustrations do this one justice, and certainly the left view is very 'Abigail's Party'. However, decided to do the shorter style with the tie, so I could wear it with leggings. Only change I made was to add some elastic onto the opposite side to the tie for a little more shape. I used a lightweight green crepe and the loose shape means it'll be lovely for summer and allow plenty of layering for winter.
Really could do with some green heels now. Maybe sequined!!
