    thank u for all the comments it realy encourage’s me i still think i could do better in the finishing and in the side seams may be it dose’nt show well, as for the draping of the chest i did’nt use a,pattern it ‘s just straight fabrics cut on a bias so it can be easy to drape the picture is not of me it’s a friend of my daughter

    Oh my goodness- your dress is beautiful! Did you use a pattern for the draping too or just the skirt? Stunning.
