personally ive done the skirt first, im not sure why though! i shouldnt think i would matter, just think about where your cutting it from so you make sure youll have enough 'uninterrupted' fabric :-) good luck!

I made one!  Finally, haha, I've been posting on/looking at this thread since page 6!

My favorite way so far to tie it...



And it was also great for my little sis's "wacky day" outfit for school!

WOW! I can't believe how beautiful all these dresses are!

I just made one, being a bog girl and knowing that circle skirts do nothing for me, I made a 1/2 circle skirt and a boob tube, and pinned it all and tried it on- anyway it was a disaster and made me look huge across my belly  Embarrassed

So I thought I would try a full circle as I had enogh fabric, and lost the boobtube too! And it looked fab!!!!!!

I am so chuffed- will have to take photos and post! I left the hem in the sqaure shape so its a hankercheif hem- partly cos I was feeling lazy lol and partly cos I love them!

I am really struggling to work out how you all are tying the dress over the shoulders, and another loop round the top of the arm?HuhHuhHuh?? HELP!!!!!!!!!
pretty please!  Grin

Thanks

have a look around the first 10 or so pages, there are some links to 'how to tie' sites.

Im not sure if this is what your after but after pulling the straps up and over your shoulders, bring them underneath your underarms and cross/tie around your middle/front.

did that work?  Huh Cheesy

Something I've been thinking about recently....

In the tutorial, the strap length calculation is based on height; however, I feel that girth should also be taken into account, as it can make a big difference when you get into some of the fancier wrapping techniques, such as the one with the loop on the arms, and that Grecian-looking wrap that I like so much, but for which my straps were too short. I think I'll add about twenty percent to the strap length next time. I'm a 2X (18-20), and I think it will help to have more strap to wrap over my chest and around my middle. Smiley

I spent WAY more time than I should have on this dress...and I screwed it up about five million different ways...but it's (pretty much) finished:





Boo to sticky, super-stretchy fabric! Sad
