Hello I made the tote quite recently but found when assembling the inner and outer together the inner was not quite right. Thinking I has made a mistake in measuring and cutting out I found that the measurements given were wrong. I slit the bottom of the inner and added the required amount and now have a very nice looking bag which I will give to my niece for her 40th birthday. It is a stunning tote.

Upon completion of this bag, I realized the lining is too short. What is the reasoning for the lining being cut 7" shorter than the face of the bag? I understand 3" of this difference is because of the (e) strips sewn to the face and becoming part of the inside of the bag, but why the additional 4"? My lining was exactly 4" too short and the bag doesn't hang right. I sewed tucks around the face of the bag to make up the difference. The next bag I make I'll change the lining measurement. Maybe you should adjust your pattern.
