This is freakin awesome. I just spend the past 2 hours reading, looking at pics, etc. I am going to buy dark turquoise and blank jersey fabric tomorrow, hopefully, and get started right away.
Who cares about homework? I'm about to graduate from college and need some dresses for grad parties! Well...I guess I should complete my coursework so I actually graduate. I should've majored in Craftology...
I will post pics as soon as I make my dress(es)! Grin Grin Grin

This is the second one I made. The skirt part is an old bed sheet.
I wore this on Easter.
Thank you so much for the link to the tutorial!

Beginning of school year resolutions: Granny-square blanket, scarf for the man, swimsuit bottoms, better organization for crafting supplies, computer case of some kind, 2 amigurumi and a pair of underwear.

i finished my graduation dress prototype that i mentioned earlier!  i messed up twice because i made the angle between the straps too huge. 

i made the floor-length bias skirt and it looked great!  i just cut on the diagonal with a heck of a lot of fabric, used 2 seams, and it worked very well.  after mistake #2 with the straps, though, when i had to rip it all out, i just took out the long skirt and replaced it with a circle skirt so it was more casual for wearing out.  here it is!











the last picture is the way i plan to wear it for graduation.  it will be all white, floor length, and afterwards ill chop it knee length and dip-dye it!

I was just wondering, do you cut out your straps first or do you cut out the skirt part?

I made this dress this summer, (before I was pregnant) and it looked lovely. I pulled it out the other day and wore the elastic like an empire waistline above my 8 month pregnant belly and it made a beautiful maternity dress. I must say though, with all the wrapping and ties it does make me look bigger than I am, but that's okay since the belly is beautiful. The skirt pulls up a little more in the front too so I wouldn't recommend wearing it on a windy day. I used extra wide elastic in mine so I think it will also make a really great postpartum dress since the elastic gives me quite a bit of support.
Thank you so much for posting this tute!

rostitchery- Am I right in understanding your tutorial- The waist band is behind the straps, and never is really seen? It is just there to hold up the skirt and to finish it off it the way you wear your dress does not have a back or so?

I think this all makes sense then.
