Wow I'm feeling that dress!(but not Paris) It does look alittle like mine but with more high quality fabrics.
The pattern design was easy to make. It took me only a few hours to make.
Assuming that you already know some pattern designing and since I don't have time to make a flowchart I will have to explain with words to the best of my ability....I hope that this sense.
You'll need to measure and cut these major pieces in accordance with your body size.
You'll need Cording for 4 pcs of straps
2 triangles to make v-neckline
1 rectriangle to cover the midriff
"a circle skirt pattern " for the bottom (there are some tutorials on here)
and miles of farbric strips to make into ruffles
fold the rectangle in half to mark the middle (this is front )
sew 1 triangle on each side of the folded end
then sew close seam (this is the back) to form a Bodice
Now sew the bodice on to the top of circle skirt's waistline to form the dress.
Make the ruffles and sew them on in layers to the egde of the skirt hem.
zigzag stitch some rows of thin elastic around the top edge of the midriff and around the armpits for a snug fit.
sew on shoulder straps and on the side of each triangle to tie around the back.
