What a great idea! After I found your posting i've been trying to figure out a way to make one too. I have a couple of questions. when you said the waistband is 44", will the waistband overlap when you wrap it, (under your arm measurement) or will it overlap? Also, you said it is more of a semi-circle shape. What is the length of the bottom, the measurement from one side to the other? I'm just trying to figure out some proportions. I am looking forward to any postings of finished dresses!!
