Transform Butterick 5462

I love this gown and would love to make it like it was intended, but sometimes only pieces of a pattern will work.
We are going take this lovely wedding gown and transform it to a elegant black 1950's inspired dress. It is the neckline and back I want. Though I had to alter the back because my customer wanted it high enough to wear a bra. Below is the fitting. The dress is also going to have a chiffon overlay. Oh oh seemed to missing a midriff section.
Here is the bodice with the overlay and midriff section.
Here is the inside of the dress. I will be posting the final dress with some hints on how to make the overlay without a pattern. It is very simple and if the fabric tears you won't even need scissors.
