I have now begun to patten for my skirt, I traced around the dress block and then extended the length to suit my design.  I firstly drew round the skirt block, and manufactured a basic skirt in calico, this will be used as my undergarment for the skirt. I then took my pattern and drew a new design line extending from the hip horizontal to my new length. 

Basic skirt.
I then cut this out of calico and begun to manufacture it. I then stitched 1cm around the hem, and another stitch of 2cm I will then gather these, to achieve volume following the same process I did on my sleeve.

Here you can see how I've adapted and changed the pattern.
