I spent way too much time researching and thought I would keep up with her progress, but it is now almost my busy Halloween season, so I decided just to whip up one in my daughter’s size and move on.  It turned out pretty good..a little big on her, but adjustable in the back via corset style lacing.  I used satin and organza and even added the striped petticoat underneath.  The pattern on the bottom is drawn on with fabric marker.

Here is a photo which shows the back laces of the bodice and the petticoat.
