This is an absolutely gorgeous gown for prom or even as an alternative wedding dress. It gives off a very ethereal princess feeling.
-I combined two patterns to make this. The bodice is McCall’s 2344, the skirt is Simplicity 0280.
-This is a size small. The measurements are a 33" bust, where the bodice and skirt meet is 30", and the length is 52"
- Its bodice is made with vintage slate blue satin with a black cotton underlining and has bias tape finished seams.
-The under-skirt is made of royal blue taffeta with finished seams. The upper skirt is made of almost 18 yards of voluminous royal blue tulle.
-There’s a center back zipper with a hook and eye. This listing also includes the taffeta bow that’s pictured.
