So I have decided I am copying this fashion plate:
Only instead of a yellow under dress I am going with green which is much more flattering on me :)
The green under dress is fully constructed i just need to set the hook and eye closure for the back and some trim to the edges like on the fashion plate. It went together in a flash, well it helped that it was already cut out :)
The over dress is being more tricky and time consuming, the material is so thin and fragile that I am having to sew it all by hand (so not my favorite thing to do!) but it's the right thing to save this fabric and make it turn out well.
I'm almost done actually just need to finish the scallops up the front. And add the little button and loop closures to hold it closed in front.
