Now I had a mess of beads and silk that looked like a wolf got into it. It looks chaotic but one little step at a time!
1) I pinned the corset together as my pattern suggested. I tried it on and repined where it didn't fit just right. Then I sewed it together.
2) I sewed on the extra lace to the bottom of the dress where I originally cut it.
3) I sewed the corset top on the gown.
