Description

For a fancy Masquerade Ball, I wanted to dress as Snow White, but wanted a cooler and more party-like outfit.
So, I used the Danielle pattern, changing it like this:
Blue satin lining: sleeves, bodess and waist band, facings
Yellow sating lining: skirt piece
Yellow tulle: over skirt, 2mt, all gathered
Ivory tulle: 1mt sewn between the facing and the bust, then cut to have an oval shape.

The difficult part was having the thick tulle neck piece and the zipper in the back. So I made a sort of box pleat in the tulle (so I could fit my head) that then would be kept closed with hooks and eyes.
To cover the piece of the neck piece that rested as a box pleat over the zipper, I placed a large red bow.

The party was a success, insofar that I got featured in the videos, which you can see here (if you have Facebook):

Material Notes

Thick satin lining in cobalt blue and yellow.
1mt cobalt blue lining
1mt yellow lining
The fabric is supposed to be lining for coats, but I liked the shiny feeling and the price, so I thought it would be suitable for a Carnival costume.
It was slippery and a little difficult to work with.
Red pure virgin wool and red satin for the bow.
2mt of yellow tulle
1mt of white/ivory tulle
