Panel ball gown petticoat

Ever since I’ve started sewing I was dreaming of making one of these skirts. It took me about 45 hours to make this dress, although the construction wasn’t really hard to figure out.

The making of this dress started from getting the right fabric. I chose special type stiffed organza, tulle, ribbon, boning.

Every inside seam is finished with a french seam. While I was nearing the end with french seams, it started to bother me, because I was really struggling. The skirt started getting its shape, and this ended up in a fight with a sewing machine to fit the skirt inside.

The waist line was finished using lace.


I’m probably going to make some skirt to put onto this dress.
