Wanted some consensus on the belt. What does everyone think of this combo? Both on amazon that we will construct to one belt with the medallion in the back.

Looks good to me! That's exactly the kind of black patent belt I'm hoping to thrift in the next 6 days to replace the temporary one I made from pleather I had on hand.

The gold might be a little thick, but the width looks great.

I wonder if there is a gold automotive trim that would work for that belt strip?

FWIW, I used a narrow strip of the same Cricut adhesive vinyl as on my temporary necklace and rear belt ornament. I'm really pleased with the results, enough so that I'll probably stick with it when I find a proper patent belt.

https://shop.cricut.com/en_us/cutting-materials/vinyl/foil/adhesive-foil.html

That's the manufacturer website; most craft stores carry it too.

I hadn't thought to pattern the dress around a bra but what you're doing makes a lot of sense! I may still tweak mine a bit on the mock before I commit to cutting the material. Nice job so far!

Had to use the bra.. The first pass need too much adjustment. I am finishing up tonight as we have been working on the bodice fit last couple of days. Think we are there. This turns out to be kinda a very sexy dress.. Go Qi'Ra.

Sleeves and skirt are cut and should be on tonight. Still need to cut gold lining.

ABOUT THE BELT. How are you guys doing the closure in the back? Any pictures??

I just saw the movie last night. There are more details that need to be added. The sleeves have open slits by the wrist, about 2-3 inches long and there are 2 gold lightning looking "buttons" at the ends of the slits. The dress definitely has a train and it goes at least a foot behind her.
Shoes are pointy toe, ankle strap and not round toe. Glad my first assumption was correct. Smile

Belt looked to have something ADDITIONAL on top of the back of the belt on top of the gold piece but you don't get a super clear view so hard to tell exactly. Your dress is looking really great! Nice work!

All good to know!! We are taking slight liberties with the back of the belt, but will share here tonight.
Can you find some sort of representative picture of the sleeves? 2 buttons on each sleeve? Quick drawing? We are doing sleeves tonight and would love to at least get the slits right. THANK YOU!!!!!

Ok, progress and would like feedback. First sleeves done, and belt probably done for version one.

Thank you! So far we are really happy with this build. We will see if it all comes together when we finish the skirt tonight!
