Where the HELL is my chiffon?

This is a costume I made for the dance studio where I work.  We have princess parties for the little ones and the adults running the party dress as the various Disney princesses.  The previous dress was a horrible store bought dress, so the recipient was VERY happy to get this one! The satin used was really difficult to get a good picture, so bear with me  Smiley


Detail shot: I hand sewed sequins to the front of the bodice and the shoulder...thingy.  Yes, that's a technical term... This one is also closest to the real color.





Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

Beautiful! Did you use a pattern, or just wing it?

Thanks! I used McCalls 5731, but made lots of changes (no sleeves, made the skirt 4 panels instead of 6, taking out some of the 6+ inches of ease built into the pattern)

This is beautiful! Is there any particular reason you chose to omit the scallops of her dress? Maybe for ease of dancing?
