The petticoat is made from Duchess satin with a Organza overlay, It has a double layer of tulle under the lace. It has a windsor elastic casting.
This dress can be made in plus sizing for no extra charge.
This dress is only available in Black or White, as there is no longer any Ivory available
Due to Tulle width this dress can be no longer than 44"
All my dress bodices are lined and double stitched, and all inner seams are overlocked and can be top stitched (if required for extra strength), They are sturdy and are up to heaps of wear and tear.

Only basic body measurements are needed to determine your pattern type and size. Remember to wear proper undergarments and shoes when measuring. Also, make sure the tape measure is held snugly and firmly (not tightly) against your body and is always parallel to the floor for circumference measurements.
BUST- Measure around the fullest part of bust and straight across back
CHEST- around body above fullest part of bust
WAIST- around body at natural waistline
HIP- around body at fullest part around the bottom—usually 7-9" (18-23cm) below waist
BACK WAIST LENGTH - from the most prominent bone at base of neck to the natural waistline
DRESS LENGTH - from shoulder seam to where you would like the dress to finish.
LENGTH FROM SHOULDER - this is the length from the shoulder to where you want the sleeve to end, if wearing a tight t-shirt with sleeves you can measure from the top of the sleeve seam.
BICEP - this is around the widest part of your upper arm
SLEEVE END - when measuring the sleeve length it can help to put small marks, then using these marks measure around the arm at this point. this way the sleeves will fit really nicely with being baggy or too tight.
Other measurements will be requested as needed
