Butterick 5678 Given a Cinderella Transformation

After all the work and preparation, the zoo ball is over and becoming a memory.
The pattern that started out as a shirt, became a little more stylized, 
and finally became a gown.
The pictures aren't the best, 
but at least you can see how the gown looked on me.

I have a question for all of you. Would you like a step by step process of how I did the dress? I would be happy to show you if there is enough response. Just leave a comment and let me know.
Happy weekend everyone!
Rhonda
