I decided she needed a petticoat underneath to include a pocket for phone, keys, fags and a bit of money. All done. It wasn't included in the quote, but then how many of us actually stick to the original brief?

Catlar that is simply stunning what a beautiful dress and fit.  I particularly like the white piping just finishes the bodice off nicely and there is just a hint of white around the frill hems and the armholes - you are a clever lady.  She should be justly proud of her lovely dress.

Lovely job, and a good idea to include pockets.
