Style 139

This evening separates collection includes the instructions for the long skirt, chiffon skirt, bustier, shoulder piece, and lace shrug.  These five pieces can be mixed and matched to create at least six different looks.

I got so bogged down sewing these outfits that I forgot to take pictures of each step.  I hope to add some pictures later.
