How fun and retro! Love the petticoat peeking from underneath too.

Your work paid off -- your alterations turned this into a very sexy 50's pouf look!

Your dress definitely has that '50s flair. It is absolutely darling and the addition of the crinoline with just a little red lace peeking out is so cute. Good luck on the wedding gown.

Well, I never even looked at this pattern before. You made it your own with the changes. I like!

OMGosh this is adorable! I'm a sucker for a 50s silhouette!! I use a highlighter on those patterns with multiple view instructions, and just highlight the instructions for the view I'm making in one color. Then if you make a different view, use a different color. That way you don't miss any!

I LOVE THIS, especially with your red crinoline. :o) Wonderful pairing of fabrics, color and fit!

How do you change the skirt to a gathered full skirt? And where can you buy crinolines these days?

Curlysu717, I got my crinoline on ebay. As far as changing the skirt...i just cut 4 yards of fabric to skirt length, leaving seam and hem allowance, and gathered it. Pinned gathered edge to bodice, adjusting to fit, and stitched it on. Inserted zipper as normal.
