sooo, i finally got around to taking 20 minutes to put the straps on and take pictures of my try at this. i really like it and might wear it for halloween. All i did was make a wasteband [[not weaved]] and tape trash bags on [[the kind that bunch at the end]] across the bottom of it and they just poofed out themselves. then i put 2 more thick square ones underneath sideways for lining. Then i just taped 2 thick ones to the top of the band buched up a little and tied them in the back in a halter. Oh, and i close mine with velcro dots then put clear packing tape over it to make sure it stays on. Here's the picture: -dont mind my demented face.
^the front [[thought i'd add, this dress makes me look fatter than i am =P]]
thanks for the great idea/tut, i love the dress!
