Today I'm working on making a costume for our family friend, Megan, who is playing Juliet in Romeo & Juliet at her high school. This bright yellow fabric is somewhat sheer, so I'm going to use lining fabric in the skirt. The bodice will also be lined and have a layer of muslin which acts as an interfacing to stiffen up the lightweight material.
The pattern is Simjplicity 2573, view B, which is the blue dress pictured at the right top. Just making the outer dress from the yellow. She will wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath and the director will add the trim and belt to the dress. I do have to put in grommets & cording.
