Big Cat Dress

I made a dress using a B5748 which is a retro reprinted dress I believe from 1960. This dress is gorgeous and when I found this fabric with lions, tigers, and leopards, I knew it was a match! I made a cross between view A and B as I kept a plain front bodice but put a bow on the back. It calls for a fully lined bodice and skirt but after learning in September that fully lined skirts get VERY heavy( I made B5882 for convocation) I decided to only line the bodice. I cut the size that I usually am but after constructing it, it was huge so I had to take it in a considerable amount. The pictures show it without a petticoat because the only petticoat I have is the one I wore to prom and it was HUGE(here’s the link to that post).
