The main fabric is a light knit. The over skirt and sleeve is a nylon chiffon. I shirred the edges of the over skirt and sleeves. Before sewing the sleeve seem I sewed the puff of the sleeve onto the fabric. The hem of the skirt will naturally curl if you pull the fabric as you zig-zag the edge.
This is a similar design with the skirt, I didn't sew the side seams completely together. This will allow for more movement and hopefully less tearing.
I started the lace on the back of the neck and pulled the fabric to ensure the stretch stayed in the fabric.
When I cut out the fabric I added a bell shape to the edge of the sleeve. Then I sewed on the lace and again pulled the fabric to keep the stretch.
Next up a veil and a yellow/blue princess dress
