Long flowy dress pattern

Hi there

I want to make something like this for my Maleficent cosplay to wear underneath the cloak as I can't imagine that would be something too comfy to spend an entire night in.

I'm having trouble finding a pattern for that shape though (and very new at this) would this work if I lengthen it? I want to have a lace/something transparenty (depending at what I can find at a reasonable price) top lair and a simple black one underneath. If that won't work have you got any other suggestions? Should I try just making a pattern myself (I bought a book and everything)?

The burda pattern you are looking at has a more squared neckline but will work if you lengthen it. However, I would also suggest either putting a kickpleat in the back, or making the skirt wider if you're going past your knees with it. as it is, you would have to walk very short steps, or lift your skirt to walk normally.
