Step 2

For the next phase in Anna's dress, I put together the gray over skirt. It looks short, but there will be a pink underskirt that goes to the knee. I cut out the over skirt on the bias, to get the best flattering flare that fabric can muster. Once I sew that, I have the zipper to put in and the sleeves. I think I may do the petal sleeves I used for the first dress I made for my blog. I think that would be best for this style: comfortable, but still flattering. The sleeves will be black. I was worried because it does look a little weird with the two colors right this moment, but the black sleeves and pink skirt will balance the whole style (i hope).

I think it will look like a Neapolitan ice cream sundae when it's done.

I hope you like it so far!
