The border pattern on the fabric meant that the pattern layout and cutting took me quite a few hours.
As I had made a muslin, sewing the dress up was straight forward. There is netting to give the skirt shape, and I lined the whole inside to make sure it would be comfortable to wear.
The neckline looks uneven in these pics, because the dress was only pinned at this stage.

I had considered making the shoulder straps adjustable, but after another fitting (my poor niece) I decided they didn't need to be.
My sister decided the dress needed something over it.............(Part 3!)
