This is a gown made for a client to wear to a ball in February. I used Simplicity 2252 view A, Size 20, no changes. My client fit the muslin almost perfectly. I made one small bust adjustment at the upper bust. I also had to shorten the hem on the finished gown (not shown). The fabric is what makes the dress.
This took about 7 hours from cut to completion, but it was well worth it. I’m a slow (and anal) sewer. :)
Poly satin, invisible zipper, Rhinestone belt buckle (at strap)
