The author erroneously thinks that "bodice" is from the waist to just below the buttocks.
A "bodice" is the part of a woman's garment that extends from the waist to the shoulder.
Realize this is a "free" book but nonetheless it should have been proofed and edited.
My only difference in opinion is where the author say to measure down to the length of dress you want. This will make that measurement specific to that dress only. I would have preferred it if it said to take two measurements instead, one to the centre of the knee and another to the ankle. This will make it just as easy to make a skirt two inches above the knee, as to make a pantsuit or all in one pyjamas from the measurements. It should be a lot more versatile that way.
I know some may find the book a bit short, but it is really good information and it is free! Perhaps in future the author might consider adding more to it, covering making patterns from existing clothing, or altering patterns?
The only caveat that I would like to add is that stretch fabrics are MUCH more forgiving of errors in measurement or making allowances. Non-stretch fabric like linens or polycottons take a lot more experimentation, or skill to get a good fit with.
Bonus if a free PDF lined skirt.
