A friend from work’s cousin offered to pay me to make Belle’s gold dress from Beauty and the Beast for Disneyland’s Halloween Party this October. I don’t have long to make it but i’ve made some great progress. I’ve almost finished the bodice, I’ve made the base of the skirt. I just need to make the lining of the skirt and the gathered outer part of the skirt, attach a zipper and i’m done. This is a picture of the unfinished bodice. I improvised the shoulder pieces and was happily surprised with the way they turned out. The bodice is fully lined, the sheer off the shoulder sleeves are hand sewn to the center of the bodice front but the back will be hand sewn to snap buttons to reduce bulk around the zipper.
