Since we will be travelling to Jamaica for the wedding, and I will be taking it to Waterloo for fittings, I thought I would make a garment bag to transport it safely around. I had a length of purple taffeta left over from bridesmaid gowns years ago, and bought a long zipper. I cut it to 5.5 feet, and sewed the zipper up the long outer edges (to join the length into a tube). I then folded it flat with the zipper up the center (right sides together) and stitched the bottom seam across, and the top seam angled a bit like a hanger with 3 inches open at the center top to allow for the hanger.
Flip it right side out, and press the seams.
