Amended design sketch . The orignal sketch was drawn up on Katies first visit and the fabrics chosen. heavy crepe with some stretch and delicate French Chantilly lace . The detachable train is in tulle with lace appliqued all around the edge.  Later the design was amended and changed to have a plunge neckline at the front under the lace and a lower back. The toile was made and fitted in cotton before cutting the dress in fabric. The dress was constructed over several fittings to create the perfect fit .
