My fluffy dress got its first outing, and I got around to taking pictures.
This is the most thoroughly 'finished' dress I've ever made. The pattern is a modified tried and true, B5748. This time I went with a gathered skirt to best utilize the border print.
The crinoline is built in, all the rough edges are bound, fully lined. You name it, it's there.
I used double fold bias tape on the crinoline hem, which brought attention to its frothiness.
I also added a stealth pocket, hidden inside a pleat in the gathering. (see above, for intense pockety sneakiness)
