I can't show you any photos of the sewing process, because I had my wonderful local super seamstress/sewing teacher make this one for me. And mostly the sewing is pretty straight forward. I was working on this at the same time I was getting ready to go to Costume Con in Toronto and didn't have time to sew it myself.
We usually like to put one than one design into a pattern and I noticed that the dresses that the ladies of the court wear had the same basic bodice shape as the dark blue dress with the weird two part skirt. I suppose this should be called a tunic rather than a dress since it really must be worn with leggings or skinny jeans.
Anyway, this is why I thought I could put these two garments into one pattern.
This link will take you to a good one. It's a Tumbler blog, so I hope this link works. Let me know if you have trouble.
I was happy with this.
There is a zipper along the left side seam.
Happy sewing everyone.
