This ball gown consists of a separate petticoat with velvet bodice and a shot silk taffeta skirt, and with an boned and corseted overdress with a draped bodice of ivory printed synthetic. I used Butterick 4657 for the upper bodice of the petticoat and Simplicity 9775 for the bodice of the corset but otherwise the dress is my own design.
velvet, shot silk taffeta, some sort of synthetic fabric for overskirt, polyester lining fabric, boning, two invisible zips, eyelets, velvet ribbon
