Aww, thank  you!  (blushing)

I like this very much--the style, the fact it's recycled, and that you made your own pattern.
The bottom photo looks as if you might have sewed pleats or tucks into the top of the brim; if so, that must have been hard to do on a curve.

Thank you!  What might look like pleats are just concentric rings of stitching.  The brim is made from three layers of fabric, for stiffness, and the stitching  keeps them together and adds stiffness, as well as a decorative element.  Smiley

You will need to make "godets" that set into the side seams.  These will make the big flare that gives the dress such a distinctive shape.

Here's a tutorial for drafting godets:

The godets  extend up to the waistline of the dress (as far as I can tell from the picture)

I know this is very rudimentary.  Let me know if you need more help.  Smiley

Hat from a greyish cotton shirt, decorations of scrap satin ribbon,bias binding, roses from silk shirt scraps from swap, leaves from parts of another shirt, feathers left over from paying work.  My own pattern, inspired by hats of the 1910s:

"the part to the right of the CB seam (the 25") is to be left open and that is for the torso, and the whole curved seam at the bottom, is that to be left open for your legs to come through??"

That is correct!   Smiley

That's all well and fine except "plus size" models barely qualify as "slightly plump."  See pic above.  Huh

It might be "ribbed knit fabric" or "rib knit fabric"    Huh

For me it would be "Diva Size!"

That's the best yet!   Cheesy
