The bodice pattern came from this Le Roy pattern I purchased off eBay some months ago (last photo). I simply cut the pattern off at the waist while tracing it out onto paper. The fabrics came from various op-shopping expeditions – I was going to make a circle skirt for more twirliness but realised there wasn’t enough of the shiny fabric for that, so settled for a simple gathered rectangle instead. I finished the hem off with some pink nylon lace that I purchased ages ago, and then sewed a double bow on the back.
