Overskirt Pattern and Sewing

Here is the traced and trued single overskirt pattern exactly as copied from the muslin drape. I then cut off the center back panel and sliced up through the remainder for sewing/design ease and fabric width. So the entire overskirt is 5 panels.

After the base was cut out, I hand basted my critical sewing lines for easier following. These lines will have the batiste gathered to them and the pink bands and lace covering these construction stitches.

Here is the lower 3rd and partial 2nd panels with the batiste gathered onto the base. Next step is adding the lace and pink bands on the vertical lines with the horizontal lace and flowers attached later.
