Maywood, New Jer...
The dress is made to resemble a wiggle dress from the late 40’s. I inserted godets in to each seam. In the back seam I inserted a godet/train, and setup a bustle so the girl could dance. As usual, I was completely irresponsible about taking pictures before I handed it over to my friend. So in the end I only have a picture of the front. The back neckline is a V as well. I would have done several things slightly different (drop the neck line, go sleeveless, etc), but she is religious and requested sleeves and a conservative neckline.
I made the pattern with Wild Ginger PM Boutique- LOVE IT! :)
