The moment I saw this fabric, I knew it would be perfect for an evening gown. The sloper pattern is really easy to work with. Once I got the fit for my body I added the full mermaid skirt. It’s a simple change, but the fabric really makes it look glamorous. I only wish I had a fancy enough holiday party to wear it to!

      Hey! Sorry for the super slow reply…life. I wanted to have a lot of flare on the bottom piece so I basically made a full circle skirt to attach to the bottom. I took a pic of the pattern piece and added it to my project photos. I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but the back piece is longer than the front, so I still used that pattern piece, just made the back piece longer at the center fold by 6 inches. (The side seam is still the same so it lines up with the front piece) Hope that helps!
