What materials did you use? Silk duppioni, charmeuse, and chiffon for the dress, cotton and cotton crinoline for the corselette/petticoat.

did you extend the cups and the length of the bodice? i'm planning on using this pattern as a base for my wedding dress, but my chest probably won't fit in the pattern as designed. :-D and i definitely want a longer bodice. your project looks great!

So sorry I missed this question somehow. I actually took one of my daughter's bras and made a pattern by morphing her bra pattern and the bodice pattern for this dress. And yes, I left plenty of length for the bodice and just fitted it to my daughter, so I'm sure I probably extended it. Hope you had good luck with yours.

This absolutely beautiful. My husband and I are going to renew our vows and I have been looking for a dress that I can make, your dress has given me some great ideas.
