It was difficult deciding just how long the skirt should be in relation to the bodice, but I think it’s ok. I now need to see if I can make a stand to hang it from….probably tubular metal and sprayed black so then there will be no need to hang it from the ceiling. So a trip to the fabricators/metal recycling. Tubular metal preferred as it will ‘mirror’ the shape of the dress.
