I have 20 yards of velvet-striped poly taffeta that looks a lot like this dress. Yes, I know, poly.
Which TV patterns could I use to recreate this gown? I don't really want that long train. What underskirt and overskirt would I use I didn't want the train?
Also, is there a bustle under all of that drapery?
Thank you for your help!
