It is made out of navy velvet fabric lined with a sweet blue floral cotton from my fabric stash, I think my mother gave it to me. I found the perfect sky blue mother of pearl buttons for it at the local sewing shop.
I didn't have a pattern so took a size 2 dress and traced around it sizing up by adding a about 5cm all around. Then I tapered the skirt in a bit as there wasn't quite enough fabric.
sorry about the bad photos they don't the detail as well as they should.
