I sewed the skirts with french seams.
The overskirt tapes are attached with buttons sewn on the skirt.
The flounces are edged with a rolled hem and pleated. The box pleated trim and the flounces are hand sewn to the skirt.
The bodice is left a little short.
The basque belt covers the gap.
The bodice closes with hooks and eyelets. It's boned only on the center front.
