I used simplicity’s Lord of the ring pattern for the gown. The skirt is just a trapezoid skirt pattern basically what I could come up to get the widest hem without a gathered waist with the least amount of waste. The under bodice was a very poor afterthought. I really wished i knew what fabric i used to make something better. the bodice is sleeveless and goes to just below bust level. An Elizabethan partlet would be a good way to explain it I suppose.
