any time you see folds, there is extra fullness.  the more folds, the more fullness.  you can tell where the fullness is by where the folds are.  since the folds/fullness in this skirt is at the hem but not at the hip or waist, you can tell that it is a-line.

edited here to add:  i went to the website and looked at the video of the pamela dress, it is NOT the same as the dress i made.  the pamela dress is a traditional halter top that is closed behind the neck and the belt is SEPARATE.  the pamela dress does have a variety of ways to wear it but it is built completely differently.

After seeing everybody's lovely dresses, I was inspired to give it a try.  The fabric I used was pretty stretchy, but I'm not sure exactly what it was because it said "unknown fibres".  It seems to be some sort of knit.  One of the best parts is that I got the fabric for 99 cents a metre so it only cost me about 3 dollars.

One modification I made was that I changed the skirt.  I originally cut out a circle skirt but I found there was too much volume (and it was also slightly too big) so I hemmed up the sides to make it more narrow.  This also resulted in the hem being kinda... well, crooked... but I don't find it's too obvious, so I'm just going ot leave it as is.

Thank you to rostitchery for the inspiration and instructions!  And thanks to everyone else for showing off their lovely creations.

Hey everybody I tried to make the dress this weekend but got stuck and frustrated when it came to putting it together, I turned the skirt with the bad side (inside) on the outside like the tut said, but it didnt come out right, after tons of tries I just gave up for now. UGH!!!!! Also, the fabric I was working with was a bit on the short side. Ugh!!! So I think I am gonna do some practicing with a different kind of fabric and also do a smaller version before I go for the big stuff. Any suggestions, or anybody care to explain how to put it all together better, or clearer pictures, or is it I am just a bit slower at this sewing thing then everybody else. I was a bit frustrated with this. Huh

bnanca, i'm sorry this was so frustrating for you. 

you don't HAVE to turn the skirt inside out but it helps if you want to take advantage of the turn of the cloth to roll the waist around your body.

if you want, you CAN sew it with the skirt turned right side out--either way, all you need to do is make sure the straps and the skirt are right sides together, and then put the folded waistband on top of all that so you sew them all on at one time.

as i have mentioned repeatedly, i am working on a new tutorial that will have more pictures but at this time i can't promise it will be ready on any specific date because i have a show to finish designing.  i promise that i will post when the new tutorial is ready.
