Audrey Hepburn Funny Face Gown

Made some progress today. I'm very scared of my next steps. For those that use vintage patterns it is the slit for the zipper! What if I cut too much? I purchased this beautiful fabric at fabric.com it was called Elegance Taffeta and it is no longer available. I used just about every bit of it. NO MISTAKES ALLOWED! Here is the bodice with the tulle. I know strange that the tulle is without the skirt. I don't know what it is but every time I cut tulle or sometimes chiffon it is never the exact same size as the fabric. Any suggestions on how to get pass this is appreciated. So to make sure everything is lined up perfectly I put the tulle on the bodice first and then I will gather the skirt attach it. Because I haven't been brave enough to cut the slit it is pinned on the form so it may look funny. Funny but not as in the Funny Face Gown. I just adore that low waist and can hardly wait to see how this turns out.
I don't have pictures but the skirt is attached. Tomorrow I will attach the skirt lining, brave the zipper and then work on the hem. She wants a 25" hem line so I will be cutting 6 inches off. Yeah I was off when I cut, but like I always say better to cut too big than too small. All visible seams have been Frenched seamed. The wedding date is the 17th of this month so it has to ship on Monday!
