So I was hoping to attempt to make a look-alike to Giselle's blue dress in Disney's new movie Enchanted, next year in my textiles class.

Just wondering if I could have some opinions on using this pattern:

Using the white top of course.

But with some adjustments and I don't really want it full length - just long-ish so i can wear it over skinny jeans.

This is her dress in the movie:

Oooo gorgeous dress! I think the white top looks good, but you might want to gather it in the center.... and are you going to make the bottom with two pieces (ie disconnected parts or two skirts) or join it all together? Because I think it would look better as two parts.

Oh definitely two disconnected panels at the front and a white lining. Just need to change that in the pattern and a sweetheart neckline.

The dress the actress is wearing actually has cups (the third pic where she's leaning back gives it away)
That bust shape is going to best be achieved using a different shaped bodice from the one you linked. I really like the one you linked btw: ) it's a better choice if you are more than a B cup, that actress is probably an A cup- she needed the help ; )

Notice how similar that is to this: http://www.butterick.com/item/B6630.htm?tab=costumes&page=10

I actually saw this movie today, and the dress in question was made out of a pair of curtains.  In the background of a few scenes, you can see the "pattern pieces" cut out against the window.  While I realize they're not going to be completely accurate, it'd be a good starting point.  The bust does look like four individual pieces, with princess seam-like lines, and an empire waist line in the front.  Oh, and it dips down in the back a bit, like there's no back bust piece, just the line of the empire waist carried around and hemmed at the back.

I would not rely on that curatin cut-out at all. It will have been laid out creativly to look good in the movie, more than likely completely inaccurate.

And really, who would cut from a curtain while its hanging over the window?!?! Even Scarlett pulled them down first! Silly Hollywood types! Trying to make it look easy! Roll Eyes
