Lol, after seeing Lizzie's Easter dress, I really wanted to make it. I almost chose satin for the fabric, then considered rayon, but decided on shantung for the gold, and a silky-ish fabric for the white part, since that's what Nina described the dress as - the gold shantung, anyway. XD Draping was an interesting experience, and ended up being trial and error with the muslin, but muslin doesn't drape the same way as either fabric did. I ended up using a circle skirt as the base for the very first skirt layer, adding a pleated layer to that to add fullness. Then, using two thirds of the circle skirt, I created the white drape, then the gold, then pleated the top layer (also a circle skirt) to create the top drapes. There're a few things I'd like to fix with this cosplay, i.e., first layer skirt length should be a few inches longer, the cuffs are paneled with gold and black, the shoes need a gold bow, and I need a proper bustle, but not bad for about two days of work~
