keena, thank YOU!  if it weren't for you, i might never has seen the monif c. website.  she had the version of this dress that moved it to the top of the list for me.

the band serves to make a finished edge on the back of the dress.  if you look at the third picture you posted (page 2 of this thread), you can see the band and also see how the front overlaps.  i continued the band around to the center front because that is an easier application than cutting to size in advance.  Smiley  besides, it makes a channel where you can put elastic if you want.

when i make the next dress, i'll take better pictures and edit the post.  i'll let you know when i do that.

kiwimonkey, the spegiel shirt is just a t-shirt.  THAT'S IT.  don't get confused by the fact that they use it in a different way.  look at the model--they show her wearing it as a shirt, and then the videos show how she changes it into other things.

Okay.  I just wasn't sure because it looked to me like one piece.  I didn't see the seam for the sleeves or anywhere else for that matter. 

Thanks for all your help!  I'm going to try this tonight if I have time!  :-)

Has anyone tried making this without stretchy fabric? I know for sure I dont have enough of anything stretch for this, but I might have enough of something non-stretch...

Actually, I'll probably just go to the store and see what they  have, because I really love this dress!

christinemichelle, i am going to try some non-stretch material too, i think i've figured out a way to make it work.

i edited the post on my blog last night to include information about the things you guys have asked--THANK YOU SO MUCH for pointing out the things i forgot or that were confusing. 

as i make the next one, i'm going to take more pictures and make a new tutorial.

Beautiful dress and great tutorial.

I'll be making one in black and one in turquoise for the foundation pieces of a trip to France my daughter will be taking with her school (lucky chick - how's she getting to Europe before Mom has?).  She'll accessorize with scarves, capelets , pins and sweaters.

Thank you for the tutorial!

Keena - There's a lot of circle skirt patterns here on craftster, and if you just take the fabric and sew two panels together (or however many you need, depending on how wide the fabric is ) you could make it wide enough.

the way I do it (as a plus sized gal myself) is to make two smaller circle skirts, cut a slit and sew them both together to make one big circle.  Which, granted means you need twice as much fabric, but it still works.
