I love this song, dance and outfit. Therefore I need to make this outfit and dance, but not necessarily dance in this humongous dress!

Base dress 50% (Posted 23rd October 2013)
I ran out of black thread and am busy all day tomorrow so only have Friday evening to sew everything... I highly doubt this will be done. Ah well, it was a fun 3 day challenge while it lasted... XD
I still need to add in a panel at the back of the bodice as it's a bit small, finish the hem of the skirt, sew the skirt to the bodice, hem the bodice, add in a zip, sew the black waistband... Basically I need a lot of black thread which I don't have.
Time Taken: 3hrs
Dress cut (Posted 22nd October 2013)
Everything is cut out except the waist band! Now I just have to sew it all up by my housemate has gone to bed and I don't want to wake him. I should be in bed too to be fair!
There's actually two half circles so that it makes a full circle skirt. I just didn't want to lay them both out.
Time Taken: 2hrs
Materials (Posted 22nd October 2013)
I went with a more silver ribbon than white as I thought it'd look better. Also went for lace instead of plain ribbon for the choker because I think it'd add more depth to the look.
Unfortunately I couldn't find a dark silver/grey satin bias binding so I have to use polycotton. I'd normally make my own but I really don't have the time or can be bothered!
Pattern ready (Posted 21st October 2013)
Literally speed drafted a bodice pattern in 20mins as I've made this sort of bodice a thousand times before and I was suppose to be asleep half an hour ago as I only had three hours sleep last night. Oops. Cutting and sewing the fabric tomorrow hopefully!
