What a weekend!!
The pattern called for full lining. I underlined the bodice with stretch mesh but opted out on the pants because my fabric was so thick. Instead I added a heavy foundation in the bodice so I wouldn't have to wear a bra. My foundation is made from crinoline and crepe and I added a waist stay. I also used metal boning which added great support. To add a pop (as if I needed more) I added an exposed zipper in red!

I love my outfit and had a great time! Hope we get to go somewhere again soon!
