Lovely! Is your fabric a border print or will you be adding the different colours at the bottom?
I would be adding them, those are in ribbon.
Hello! I have decided to try my hand at sewing ballroom costumes- and I want to pick your brain!! I am a novice sewer, but am eager to learn. Did you use a pattern for your bodice on the orange dress and mesh top for the green dress?
I did use a pattern, the pattern I used was the green pepper "crystal lake skating outfit" (http://www.thegreenpepper.com/downloads/517web.pdf). I found I had to make some modifications to make it fit my figure better, including taking it in some. Definitely measure the pattern and think about how much your fabric is going to stretch, I found that what should have been my size according to the directions was too big.
