    This looks seriously awesome, is the skirt part cut like a circle or did you gather the fabric? (I can’t see from the picture, and I’m working on something similar) :)

      its actually an 8 piece skirt, i cut a piece to attach to each bodice piece and just made each one with a lot of volume and then there are some pleats….if that makes sense lol
