This is my NPC outift. It took forever to sew and I am incredibly grateful to all my lovely craft night gang for helping me with the fitting!

The pattern is McCalls 6097. I used navy blue satin and cream faux brocade. I know you can't really see it in these pictures, but it's got the prettiest pattern!
The top is laced with navy sating ribbon and the dress is trimmed with a floral lace. Due to the shape of my petticoat I made the train and the bustle.
The above pictures are in case anyone is wondering how I achieve the dress shape! Many thanks to Lamoriel for lending me her petticoat until I get my own!
This took me about two and a half weeks to sew and was a labour of love. I love this dress!
