Today we measured it, cut it from the rest of the dress, hemmed it, and sewed it. I put it on her to see how it fit and safety pinned it to figure out where to put the buckles.
I'm going to add an underside tail strap to keep it on her back. I personally think it looks fancy and would be great for some of the more fancy type photo shoots photo fun. I think the flow would be great.
I showed it to my boyfriend and he pointed out it looks just like a wedding dress train, well it is but is it at all nice looking? I like it. It's not finished but I thought I'd share what it looks like so far.
Now I do have one small question.
I was thinking of using a regular blanket buckles, I was also debating on using velcro? Velcro would completely close it in the front where as a buckle would leave a small opening. I can't make up my mind what do you think? Velcro or buckle for the chest.
