Hi all,
I would really love to recreate the same skirt pattern like in the below link of the givenchy gown Beyonce wore at last years met gala. I was wondering how can I achieve a similar type of pattern, or what shapes or quick sketch is involved to make this sort of skirt? is it possible to make a circle skirt with an extension at the back? I need to make as basic as possible, but as you can see by my approach i’m new to sewing, so please, someone help me! Any links or advice would be appreciated!

    Only the first link was able to work for me, but from what I saw in that picture I would find a mermaid wedding dress pattern with a train, then it wouldn’t require as much drafting and alterations.

    Try a pattern with a pencil skirt and flounce at hem line. Lengthen pencil skirt where flounce attaches to skirt. Make a detachable train that attaches to horizontal seam line on top of flounce. If you do not have a pattern for the train, cut a rectangle in desired length on the bias and use snaps to attach to horizontal seam line on top of flounce for the skirt. Being frugal, I prefer tops and skirts to dresses for more wardrobe versatility.
