Raleigh, North C...
I made this dress for my boyfriend’s niece! It was her for her first homecoming :) I lined the entire dress rather than just the bodice and I felt like this made for a more polished finish. I also added some decorative ribbon on the inside around the waistline, but it is not an actual waist stay. The dress took a good bit of time because it was three different layers of fabric, but it was not difficult to sew.
