Wonderful! I especially love this kind of train. Could you explain in a few words how you did it? Is it one huge piece of fabric that was folded to look this way or is it strategically assembled pieces?

Lovely :) How did they react to you at the Garnier? I hear they re much better about fans now than they were when I was there (97).

And thanks for the link back :) I didn't realise how long I had been away from these forums!

Hello :D
Happy to see you here, thanks again for this wonderful tutorial!
I went @ Garnier with many people in costume, so I wasn't a curiosity, nobody noticed that I was actually making a cosplay, even in my group of friends haha, it was just a ballet in costume, organized by the association, and it was a good occasion for me to wear this dress, even if it wasn't a ball/opera gown haha :D When you call the Opera to ask them kindly if you can come in costume they never disagree :) they just want to know before.
I'd like to make a photoshoot with the Think of Me dress from the 2004 movie version :) I still have to glue those 5000 rhinestones... humm hummm... :oops:
