This dress traveled 23 hours with me to Philly!
I used a bit of double sided tap to ensure the back wont move all over the place to expose my bra!
It would be good to mark the centre at bottom of bias bodice before gathering. Match the bodice centre marking with the centre marking for top of skirt.
I had to redo my gathering when trying on the dress before putting on zipper. Luckily not much unpicking to do. Apparently the bias bodice was not centered and the fabric pulled to one side which was quite obvious and not comfortable to wear.
Satin for outer fabric
Stretch polyester for lining
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
